In the interest of the health and safety of our visitors, guest speakers, performers, and staff, we are canceling all events through April 10. We hope to reschedule this program and will let all current registrants know of the new date as soon as it’s set.
Please review other precautionary measures the museum is taking due to COVID-19.
Start collecting images, observations, ideas, and thoughts in a sketchbook. Drawing regularly in a sketchbook encourages creative thinking, fosters experimentation, and is a valuable practice for both beginner and seasoned artists. In this six-week session, you’ll be inspired by works in the museum’s collection as well as events, experiences, and observations from your everyday life.
This class is for people ages 16 and up. All materials will be provided.
