This class is only for sketching and watercolor beginners who want to learn basic skills.

Artwork often will be finished outside of class. Participants will need drawing pencils: numbers 2B, 4B, 5B, 6B, 7B or 8B, and 2H, 3H or 4H; a sketching pad of 80 lb. weight drawing paper; a kneadable eraser; one small and one large stump and small scrap of sandpaper. (Watercolor supplies will be discussed at the first class.) Please do not register for the F106 Drawing and Sketching Workshop or F112 Watercolor Painting class if you register for this class.
