Keeping a sketchbook helps us to stop for our own sakes in this anxious world, and for the sake of our neighbor as we pay attention to them.

This workshop will include: the Hows of drawing, through basic, observational drawing practices; & the Whys of drawing like paying attention to our selves, neighbor, and world around us. We'll practice sharing our own sketchbook & artwork as gifts.
