    Lisa Thompson

    Illustrator & Art Teacher

     

    I am an Illustrator, runner, and a wannabe surfer, in addition to being a wife and a mother of three awesome and paint-splattered boys. 

    Learn To Draw are fun yet challenging lessons taught in my Glamorgan home. I look forward to spending some time with your child each week helping them develop their drawing skills and a love of art.

    Classes for Children in Grades 4-6

    Learn to Draw from Life

     

    Dates TBD

     

    In this 6 week class students will learn to draw from life. The first two classes will be spent in a classroom setting drawing from still life and from models (our classmates and my children) Then we will spend the next 4 classes out in the world, sketching in coffee shops, bookstores, and weather permitting, in nature. As we sketch in our sketchbooks we will also be exploring new media (pen & ink and watercolors).
