MindEdge Studio: Introduction to Drawing


with MindEdge Instructor

Calendar Current session started Apr 4, 2023

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, bookmarks, necklace and earring sets and so much more!

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.

The 3rd class will be for those who need to come in and take their product out of the mold to take home.

Melissa will have dozens of molds to choose from.
