Learn All About Drawing Class!
The personality of drawing is precision and control. It pulls from the rational brain more than the painting mediums do.
We go to drawing for predictability, you don't have to wonder what it's going to look like when you put pencil to paper. This allows the drawer to focus on details.
Drawing is really about seeing, so when you learn to draw, you're training your brain to SEE!
If you'd like to train your brain to SEE what's really there and translate it onto paper, check out our Drawing community!
Drawing: Mondays 6:30-9 PM MST

Enjoy the benefits of having a fun creative outlet
and built-in me-time every week!
Hi, I'm Shannon, your Drawing teacher.
As a professional artist, I can tell you that I struggled to learn how to create art that felt authentic to ME.
I almost gave up and switched majors!
It did not come easy to me until I met the right teacher and had someone guiding me through the steps.
What you need is a knowledgeable guide teaching you the fundamentals of drawing and helping when you get stuck in your personal creative process.
Many people think that they can learn how to draw on their own, reading books or watching YouTube tutorials, but when they get stuck, they don't know what's NOT working.
Instead of thinking "I just don't have a natural talent for this..." what you actually need is an expert teacher who can guide you out of those stuck moments and to the finished product you have in your mind.
I promise, anyone can learn to draw well!
That's why I came up with MBodied Drawing course to provide budding artists with the support they need to unleash their creative potential in a safe, non-judgmental environment with inspiring lessons that allow you to choose the level of challenge you want.

FAQ's about our Drawing Class
What if I'm going to miss a class?
No problem, we've got you covered. We record every class and post them inside the private member's area within 24 hours of class.
What will the classes be like?
We always start with a get-to-know-you question to build community.
Then Shannon will demo the lesson for the night. Then students start working on their assignment and have individual help when needed.
What will we draw on and with?
You will draw with artist pencils, charcoal, ink and marker depending on the assignment. It may be helpful to draw on drawing boards on an easel so that you are looking at your image head on, which helps with perspective and composition.
Who will be in my class?
Your class will be adults who are looking to relax, be creative, and express themselves. On special occasions, we let mature teens into our classes as well.
What if I have absolutely no experience?
No experience is great! We can teach you all the fundamentals of drawing in about 6-8 weeks. Our curriculum offers absolute beginner assignments through challenge assignments so that you can actually choose what you want to draw and what feels like the just-right fit for you.
How do I prepare for my first class?
For your first class, make sure you have your Zoom link and check the materials list for your class so that you have everything you need to get started.
How much individual instruction will I get?
After teaching the lesson, Shannon will be available for guidance and questions so that you can get individual instruction whenever you need it. This allows for you to get into the flow and not be bothered OR get any help you need just depending on your mood for the evening!
