Art Series (ONLINE)

2020-11-25T11:31:03-05:00

In this ‘Drawing What I See’ online Art Series, participants will explore thematic collections of photographs as a source of inspiration for their individual drawings.

As participants progress they will be encouraged to ‘go with the flow’ to explore and express their response to the shared creative process. Participants are welcome to use available materials at hand such as pencils, pastels, paints, paper, cardboard, string, ribbon, buttons, findings, tape and glue. This series is appropriate for learners at all levels and will be rich in collaborative and creative problem solving.  Join us for 1-hour online session.

Thursdays, November 12, 19, 26, December 3, 10 and 17 (6-week series) from 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
