Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hello! My name is Valerie and even though I'm not quite sure what my major is yet, I love the arts and writing. My main activity on campus is the Yale Daily News, and I write about the Board of Education after most of their meetings. I love Yale and I've learned so much already even though I'm only a first-year, and I hope that I can pass on some of what I've learned to others!

A3727: You're Not Bad At Drawing in Splash Spring 19 (Apr. 06, 2019)
Drawing isn't just nude dudes and bowls of fruit. In fact, drawing can encompass pretty much everything, from things you can see to things you can't. In this class, we'll use techniques like blind contour (get ready for some scary pieces) and upside-down drawings (they're cool, I swear) to learn one of the greatest drawing techniques: draw what you see, not what you think.
