Drawing with the Basement Monster aka Daniel O'Brien

Beginner Life Drawing Class for Kids:

Here we start with the basics of figure and life drawing. We will explore the different types of line work and stippling. We learn how to use negative space to build a drawing while having fun along the way.

Materials provide by PO'P Gallery.

Daniel (The Basement Monster) O’Brien is a Trinidadian born illustrator currently residing in Queens, New York with Obie his loyal and energetic dog. He holds a BFA in Illustration from The School of Visual Arts.
