1 Day Workshop

Daily observations from our life provide the substance of our art. This workshop is all about getting back to (or begin) using your sketchbook.  Ideas, prompts, and a few open-ended exercises will help begin a natural and regular habit of drawing, painting, and writing in your favorite sketchbook.  Bring your own sketchbook.  A list of suggested materials to bring to class will be provided.
