The Joy of Drawing

8 weekly classes, 2 hours each class (last week is public exhibition of work)

Up to 12 students

$2300 (includes curriculum development, teaching, general use materials and art supplies that participants keep after class to encourage a creative practice)

Embrace your inner artist in a class that encourages experimentation and self-expression. Drawing is good for the brain too - it reduces stress, strengthens memory, and releases endorphins. No experience is necessary in this gentle introduction to various materials and unique approaches to drawing for the sake of joy. Materials used include pencil, charcoal, pen, ink, and watercolor and pastel.
