If you’ve ever wanted to learn to draw or maybe you’re a bit rusty, join us for a one- day bonanza of visualizing and seeing in a new way. You don’t need lots to time or talent, just time to learn. Overcome your “I can’t draw” fears with new directions. These lessons will give you an invitation to develop basic techniques and build skills needed to express your creative soul. This workshop will focus on drawing shapes, lines, and patterns using techniques with pencil, pen, and colored pencils.
