This is a 1 day workshop.

Artists’ fine line markers are not just for careful detail work – they’re also great for quick sketches. With the addition of color – with colored pens, a few colored pencils, watercolor pencils, pastels or watercolors – you can create fresh and lively frameable art or fill a journal. Forget erasing and fixing things, just loosen up and have fun drawing! (Weather permitting, this class will draw outside too.)
