TRUE NATURE: WRITING & DRAWING THE WORLD
Monday, September 2nd, 2-4 PM
Tuesday, September 3rd, 10 AM - 12 PM

TRUE NATURE: WRITING & DRAWING THE WORLD

Beginning with simple pencil lines, held by an ancient order, we will follow what calls our attention and discover where we are in this moment. Practicing blind contour drawing levels the field and brings forth the artist in us all. Adding words to the page clarifies and enlarges the insight.

Come explore a simple and enlivening way to journal the world. Bring a pencil or pen and an unlined journal, 8” x 10” or larger. No previous art experience needed.
