Use the Force to draw your favorite Star Wars ships and characters! This fun class will teach Star Wars fans how to draw the Millennium Falcon, Star Destroyers, X-Wing and TIE fighters, Darth Vader and more, all in a relaxed online environment sprinkled with interesting, little known Star Wars trivia by the instructor, who has been a member of a global Star Wars costuming organization for over 10 years and owns movie accurate Star Wars costumes. There is no pressure to keep up with other students; everyone learns at their own pace. All that is required is a sketchbook, drawing pencils, and a desire to defend the galaxy. Students learn to improve their drawing confidence while having fun at the same time. (Thursdays, 7pm – 8pm)
