For those who think that the only people who can draw are those born with that “gift”; guess again. If you have never progressed beyond the drawings you did in grade school, this class should help you gain those skills. If you are already a painter, this class will help refine your drawing skills and gain confidence.

Through a series of exercises, you will be taught, on a building block style, how to really see what you are drawing. Once you know this, you will be able to join any other art class with the confidence of an artist.

Deanna Clucas also offers Beyond Drawing for the Novice for students who have completed her Drawing for the Novice class. In this class, students will focus on learning advanced drawing techniques to further advance your drawing skills. For more information, contact Deanna Clucas.

* Students will need to bring a 3″ 3 ring binder
* No cancellations once class has started
* No new students after first week of class


As a realistic to abstract watercolor and acrylic artist and instructor, Deanna Clucas has been painting since childhood and steadily since 1989 and shows and sells her work in 20+ juried shows a year. 

After studying with the Art Instruction School and while maintaining a full-time career with Myers Industries and raising her family as a single parent, she earned a degree in Commercial Art and Business Administration from the University of Akron. Taking ongoing watercolor and acrylic classes and workshops since 1989 from the area’s finest artists keeps her work fresh. Her award winning realistic and abstract paintings include colorful local landscapes, still lifes, pet and home commissions, some of which are included in private and corporate collections throughout the country.
