Q.   I have little to no experience drawing, is this class for me?

A. Yes, Absolutely! Our instructors take you step by step through each lesson.  We aim for our workshops to feel comfortable, inviting, and promote a space filled with no judgments (especially from ourselves.) We understand that learning a new skill or trade can be intimidating sometimes but sketching for us is all about being creative and having fun!  Many students in class start off as beginners, but by the end – everyone is sure to feel energized and confident in their ability to sketch! The workshops highly encourages group collaboration so everyone is very friendly, helpful, and supportive.


Q. Why do you have 1 and 2 day options?

A. After touring and offering our 1 day (level 1A) workshops, we received an overwhelming response to offer 2 days (level 1A+1B).  We thought it was a great way for those wanting to learn more to offer both days and for those that have already taken last year’s session to have an option to take level 1B. Ultimately, we wanted our attendees both past and present to get the most out of their time with The Sketchbook Series.
