Draw Start Explore: Beginners Drawing Class

Saturday 20 April
Clovis - Burl Ave - 12pm - 2 Hours
Fresno Art Group
Raquel Purganan
Beginner drawing involves mastering foundational skills that form the backbone of artistic expression. Firstly, understanding lines and their variations, such as straight, curved, or diagonal, allows beginners to sketch basic shapes. Learning to recognize and draw basic shapes, like circles, squares, and triangles, serves as a crucial step in creating more complex objects and scenes. As beginners progress, they delve into the importance of shading to add depth and dimension to their drawings. Practicing proportion and scale ensures that the elements within a drawing are accurately sized and balanced. Through consistent practice and experimentation, beginners gradually build confidence and competence in their drawing skills, setting the stage for further artistic exploration and development.

    Jennifer Narciso
    My name is Jennifer Narciso. I'm a proud mom of a blended family of 4 children. I have been obsessed with photography since I was a child and started taking my first photos over 22 years ago. There is not one type of photography that I wouldn't love to do and further my skill set as years pass. Landscape photography will always be one of my favorites.

    I have over 6 years of commercial art knowledge and experience as well as over 2 years of graphic design. I'm hoping that I can bring key concepts to light and show ho to better focus on getting a great landscape photo. I can't wait to show how many different ways to capture your landscape.

    Title or Location: Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary, Australian Capital Territory.
    This amazing shot was taken at Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary during one of my morning visits at the Sanctuary in February 2024. The first soft light rays from the sun and rising of mist from the lake water made it to look more serene and atmospheric environment. The dead tree (snags) in the water played vital role in making it look like the ghostly scenes in Hollywood movie "Lord of the Rings".The photo was shot with Nikon Z7ii at ISO 100, f14 at 13 sec and processed in Lightroom classic

    Been trying to capture an airplane going in front of the Moon for years. Still haven't got that Moon transit capture. There is something dynamic about this almost transit image I captured though. It almost gives the appearance that the passengers of that plane are doing a fly by and see the moon up close out of their windows.

    Working on trying new things! Plucked this Puff out of my front yard flower bed. Used a small compact mirror to create the shot using natural daylight thorough the window.
