$ 100  

Many people tend to plan out their drawing/painting/collage and have a hard time with the idea of not knowing how it will turn out. And yet, planning is one of the biggest obstacles to developing a deeper art practice. If you are constantly judging your work-in-progress against your planned or expected result, you can fail to see the beauty in what you are creating. Improvisational drawing - making it up as you go along, without a plan - gives you the opportunity to embrace the unexpected, discover new visual language, and surprise yourself. 

Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:

• Sketchbook and/or loose cheap drawing paper. 9”x12”, 8.5”x11”, or 11”x14”
• Drawing tools, as many of the following as you have:
o markers
o paint markers
o wax crayons
o water soluble crayons (Caran d’Ache)
o colored pencils

o felt tip pens

o pastels
o oil pastels
o charcoal
