Ustream Class 5/25


Sometimes the most intimidating part of art is the sketching process.  Led by Limor Webber, this class will teach you how to skip that step with a few tracing tips. Once you have a base, we'll show you how to use a variety of mediums to add texture, color, and dimension to your canvas.  

Watch the class  here at 9PM EST on 5/25
