About this Workshop:

Join illustrator and cartoonist Lenora Yerkes for a five-part drawing workshop focused on stimulating creativity. You’ll learn techniques for quieting your internal editor, working through creative blocks, and organizing your thoughts into compelling narratives. In the first class, you’ll learn how to develop a daily practice, break out of an artistic rut, and learn inhibition-free techniques for drawing and creating. The remaining five classes will help you put these teachings into practice. The goal is to start you writing or drawing—and then to help you keep creating, no matter where you are or what you do. If you’ve ever wanted to draw or write but think you “can’t,” or if you struggle to create a steady flow of art, this workshop is for you.

Level: All levels welcome – no experience necessary

Registration has been extended through April 28, 2022 and includes a materials fee to cover the supplies provided in class.
