MindEdge Studio: Introduction to Drawing
with MindEdge Instructor
Drawing is a foundational skill that can aid in the development of other creative pursuits. Painters, architects, woodworkers, gardeners, and designers all benefit from honing their drawing skills. But drawing is also an art form in its own right, and learning how to draw can help unlock one's creative potential. Many benefits associated with drawing include increased focus and relaxation, improved creativity and problem solving, and greater hand-eye coordination. In this course, you'll learn the basics of drawing, including how to practice and implement the basic elements of drawing and how to develop a regular habit of drawing and sketching.

This class will teach you how to make shelf sitters, compacts with mirrors, large horse, bookmarks and many other things with resin. This is a 2 part class.
The first class will teach you how to mix the resin, color it and pour. It takes about 24 hours to cure the resin. The next class you will come and if it's done you can take it out of the mold and put the finishing touches on it.
Some people may have a mold that they choose to do 2 different colors. The second class will be pouring the second color. These make beautiful gifts and is a fun and a little sticky activity to do.
**We will be adding more molds to this class over the summer so there will be a variety of things to choose from. We have an elephant, horse, wolf, eagle, bear and moose.**
