What You'll Get
- Five Drawing Classes with Project Booklet
- One Intro to Drawing Class with Project Booklet
The one-hour drawing classes, helmed by veteran art instructor Linda Wehrli, demystify the visual arts for students as they glean useful tips on illustrating their own masterworks. With graphite in hand, budding artists sketch and shade their way through small-group classes as the teacher attends to them individually, bolstering strengths and improving weaknesses.
All materials are provided for the first session, after which students are required to either bring drawing supplies from home or purchase supplies from the studio. Aside from enhanced drafting chops, students leave classes with a project booklet full of ideas for furthering their artistic studies from the comfort of their own home. The deal also includes a complementary hand-lettered gift certificate for vouchers purchased as gifts.
Intro to Drawing with Graphite Includes instruction, a project booklet the student may keep and complementary use of art supplies. This Beginners Class is ideal for kids, teens, adults and seniors wanting to try their hand at drawing.

About Pastimes for a Lifetime
Linda Wehrli has raw talent. Since age 5, she has re-created her world through drawings and paintings and has channeled her sense of self-expression through playing the piano, abilities that led her to study formally with instructors from Juliard and Cal State Northridge. Now, with her works hanging in private collections, Linda passes on her knowledge to students at Pastimes for a Lifetime.
She teaches students of all skill levels and ages—6-year-olds to seniors—to hone their creativity into life-like or abstract drawings and paintings. Her classes aim to build a foundation of aptitude in one particular medium, such as drawing with pen or charcoal or painting with oils or acrylics—and the necessary supplies can all be purchased at the on-site art shop.
Tapping into her musical talents, she also helms piano lessons, teaching students to read and play music. Her confidence-building approach helps beginners and advanced players alike become better musicians, and inspires those once spurned by a piano that wouldn't settle down to become reacquainted with their abilities. To further their studies, pianists can go home with a book she co-published with her husband.
