Each day of our life offers creative inspiration, if only we take a pause to look! In this uplifting drawing workshop, local professional illustrator Lauren Beck (Ren & Ink LLC) will lead students in exploring the art of sketch journaling. By first learning simple line and shading techniques, along with tips and tricks for successful sketch recording, the class will use visual journal prompts to capture the small (but meaningful) moments, celebrating the daily delights of life with art.
