At Clever Hands, there's no such thing as a good or bad drawing. To take a pencil and make a mark on paper is a huge step that many people don't feel brave enough to do. In this fun and relaxed art class hosted by local Artist and tutor Melanie Sullivan, you'll see plenty examples of drawing and sketching techniques.
