Just like at the gym, in art there are exercises that can help you build your core drawing muscles. This workshop will provide the environment and guidance to better equip you with the ability to draw what you want, how you want. Each class will begin with an optional warm-up exercise to get the creative juices flowing, followed by a springboard, such as a demonstration or subject matter suggestion. Your guide, Sheri, has a BFA from UConn, a Ed.M. in Arts in Education from Harvard, and recent coursework in Expressive Arts from Lesley University. All levels of experience are welcome.

Bring a sketchbook, pencil and kneaded eraser to the first class, and any other drawing materials you would like to explore.

Coaching

Back to Basics

November 13–15
Come to the studio for 1 or 2 days [or Friday night too?] and get back to basics: see, move, write, make, play, eat, breathe, listen, share, rest, feel…. As we move in to this busy time of year (aren’t they all?) let’s simplify in order to remember and revel in what’s essential in our artmaking and in our lives.
Ellie and Suzanne have been coaching, playing, writing, building, and painting together at Turtle Studios – off and on – since 1990, and are thrilled to be joining forces once again!
Basic materials for play, drawing, painting and writing provided; bring additional materials as you wish.  Lunch both days will be potluck; bring a dish to share – or you are welcome to bring/buy lunch for yourself if that’s preferable.  Keep it simple!
RSVP to  Ellie( 978) 501-0070 or Suzanne 339-440-2285 with any questions etc.

Looking forward to getting back to basics with you!
