Drawing class

I'm quite surprised that the drawing class I signed up for has actually gone ahead. There are only 7 of us in the class and usually they have a minimum number before it can run and that's usually more than 7. But don't think I'm complaining - I'm not. Being a small class means our tutor, Mike, can get around to see us all.
I won't be showing my first attempt - well not yet - I might share it later to show any progress I've made. The first class was drawing a still life of various shaped bottles. The idea was not to draw all of the items perfectly, but to get their arrangement right i.e. the proportions, relationship between items and distance between each item spot on. I did have to make a bit of an adjustment - but I got there in the end. It was very interesting to see how drawing styles are as individual as writing styles. And the best part was we all seemed to be really happy with what we drew in our first class.
I'd love to hear if any of you are attending drawing or art classes.
