If you answered "yes" to one, two or all of the above--have we got an opportunity for you! 

We will be working with pencil and/or pen to achieve a three-dimensional effect on a two-dimensional surface.  Value, perspective and composition will be explored. 
Beginners are welcome.  Those with drawing experience will be encouraged to try colored pencils and other drawing materials.  
Bring a sketchbook and photo references if you have them, otherwise the library will provide them for you.

The class will be led by Lois Hrejsa, graduate of the American Academy of Art where she taught for 18 years.  She currently teaches drawing and watercolor classes at the Log Cabin Center for the Arts in Palos Park.
