The Pleasure of Drawing with Emilie (Online)
As a kid, drawing is a fun activity that almost all of us enjoyed, at school or at home.
Growing up most of us drop the habit of drawing and we often become inhibited with pen and paper.
In this workshop you will learn a series of drawing exercises to get back in touch with the pleasure of drawing!
From observation drawings to doodling and pattern, explore new ways to push your drawing skills or just get back into drawing freely like a 10 year old.
