Drawing is for everyone

If you’ve ever said, “Oh, I can’t draw,” or if you love art and wish you could do what artists do, this workshop is for you. Drawing is not only for a select few, and it’s not just for professional artists. Drawing is something that everyone can learn, and it offers many benefits. 

This introductory workshop with acclaimed artist Terri Myers Wentzka will walk you through the basics of learning to draw in a friendly, no-stress manner. Our focus will be on doing, not on perfection. This workshop will be relaxing, fun, and designed to take the fear out of touching pencil to paper. No experience necessary, no fears, and no apologies for what you can or can’t do. We’ll start wherever you are.
