Whether you are interested in a refresher course or drawing for the first time. Drawing is a foundation course for painting and two-dimensional composition. Learning to see in terms of lines, shapes and values is the essential skill required to translate the three-dimensional world to any two dimensional surface - regardless of the medium you ultimately wish to explore. If you want to improve your painting - take this course.
If you are just starting out exploring the visual arts - this is the course to take. As well as learning to draw you will learn the most essential thing in the arts: HOW TO SEE, the foundation of all art.
All materials are included.

Testimonials from Vince Fazio’s Drawing Crash Course
“Enjoyed the class immensely. It opened a whole new world for me in how I see/perceive the world.”
“Vince Fazio has the ability to condense core practices of drawing into 4 experiential sessions. He is an excellent instructor, patient, encouraging. His feedback helped me see more about light and shadow and proportion. I feel like my brain expanded perceptually. I am encouraged to keep on with learning to draw.”
“Adult art education at its best! In Crash Course for Drawing, Vince Fazio provides results-oriented, professional instruction complete with positive encouragement and constructive feedback.”
“Vince was an extremely patient and supportive instructor for the drawing crash course class. He found positive aspects in our work while pointing out areas where we could improve. I learned a lot from Vince in this class.”
“Vince imbues the class with enthusiasm, brings out work that in some cases is better than the student has managed to create in earlier work, works carefully one on one without favoring students, is very articulate, and patient.”
“Greatly appreciated Vince's teaching style. Explained what the objective of the evening was; lectured briefly on the basic points related to the objective; demonstrated the lecture points; then had students draw using the points presented to achieve the objective, providing relevant feedback as we worked.”
“Vince was excellent. He squeezed a lot of material into just a few classes, and I think he gave all of us in the class a strong foundation to build on going forward. I really enjoyed it, so many thanks to him for his efforts.”
“Vince is an excellent instructor. He checks to make sure students understand, and provides individual feedback. It was a very easy going and fun class, chock-full of helpful information.”
“Vince brings high energy and enthusiasm to the crash drawing class with class lectures that are to the point and an amazing amount of personal help for each student.”
“I was one of the least experienced students in the class but he never once made me feel hopeless. He always found something to praise in each student's work. We had several famous Sedona artist's in our class but I never knew it until the end of the last day! He had treated us all equally. WOW!”
“He helped me understand proportions and the different techniques to achieve them. Liked his straightforward critique, very constructive. I would take another one of his classes.”
