Program Description

Event Details

Using ink, watercolors, graphite, and various kinds of paper, participants will do creative expression exercises in order to create a one-of-a-kind book. Spontaneous drawings and mark making often lead to images and stories we didn’t know were there. Come with a playful attitude.

This series is six weeks long, and registration is required—please make sure that you can attend every class before registering. Thank you!


Classes will take place on:

June 8, 15, 22, 29

July 6, 13
