Learning to Draw 101 – Drink and Draw

September 12, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Note Gilmer Arts members get a 10% discount on classes!

The Viking is looking for people who say, “I can’t draw a straight line.” Darren is ready to take the challenge to help you go from there to leaving with a picture of a beautiful veil-tail goldfish. This intro class is a lead-in to his 6 week series, starting in October to help you reach a place where you can replicate anything you want to.

Meet Darren Wesley

Darren Wesley has had a fondness for art since childhood, doodling cartoons and drawing things around him. As an adult, he set aside his talent, allowing life to take him entirely away from his hobby.

He rediscovered his hobby, along with the necessary skills to produce photorealistic images, from portraits to animals and even realistic water drops! He believes that, while talent plays a role in developing his projects, much of the ability comes from a skill that can be taught!

Darren is the owner of Viking Outdoor, a company that provides outdoor lighting and outdoor sound systems to the mountain community, allowing his artistic abilities to flow into his daily life. He is also a writer and a student of philosophy, a member of The Optimist Club, involved in the Boys and Girls Club, and currently serves on the board for the High Country Builders Association, and a Desert Storm veteran.
