Demystify drawing in this travel journaling class with artist Kelvin Nguyen. Using simple supplies, pen and marker, students will learn quick drawing techniques in a travel journal. The class will explore how to quickly draw rocks, plants, people, and wildlife to help students create a journal that communicates their experiences in Yosemite. Drawing can help us remember our experiences and enrich the experience as we are living it. This class is for all artists, especially beginners, to help them learn how to draw what they see without stress.
