August 26, 2022



The Vancouver Visual Art Foundation invites you to get creative. We feature talented artists to teach their skills and passions.

How to Draw Lips

In this class, you will learn how to draw realistic lips. We will begin with an overview of materials and how they’re used, drawing shapes to warm up, learn basic anatomy of the lips, a drawing exercise to help us understand forms and shapes, then proceed with the main drawing. This is a beginner to intermediate level class, and by the end you will become more comfortable with drawing and shading lips.
