Sketching your Life


Details Fee Breakdown:
Tuition: $770
Material Fee: $55

We will make our own sketchbooks and then draw in them, creating a journal of our days. Anything is fair game, from local plants, buildings, animals, and scenes, to the activities in other workshops, food, ideas, dreams, people doing interesting things. We will use many different media to create a dynamic record of our lives. You don’t have to be an expert at drawing, just approach it with curiosity and enthusiasm.

Workshops run from 9:00am to 5:00pm each day
Lunch is included for all participants

Level: Beginner and Beyond
