Drawing Lessons with Darlene   Download my Brochure

I have been teaching art for many years and love nothing more than sharing my love of drawing with others and to see their passion develop as they find their inner artist.

Teaching all ages - in individual or group classes - to learn how to use different pencils, drawing tools, and techniques that will help them create drawings that come alive on the paper.

There is an artist in most people, you just have to learn to let it out. When students see what they can do it is very rewarding.

Lessons are held by appointment at my studio mornings and evenings, Wednesday to Sunday. Visit my Contact page for the location and map.

The cost is $50 per lesson plus HST and sold in blocks of 5 or 10. Materials provided. Payment can be made by debit or credit card on site or through PayPal using this Buy Now button:
