Drawing Classes at Maryland Hall

Drawing provides a variety of benefits to our overall well-being including decreased stress, improved creativity, and stronger critical thinking skills. Every semester, our Teaching Artists offer a variety of drawing classes using different mediums for beginners to experienced drawers. Draw from a live model in a figure or portrait drawing class, take your sketch pad outside in an urban sketch class or start from the foundations of drawing in a new virtual class.
