    If you can draw basic shapes like a square, circle, and a triangle, you can draw just about anything! Hard to believe? In this workshop you’ll be taught how to think about what you are drawing and how to look for the basic shapes in a more complex object. You’ll finish a drawing of a familiar object that is fairly complex, but you’ll discover how much easier it is when you see the shapes!
