Sketch Journal Workshop Series

Do you enjoy journaling?  Do you think visually?  Would you like to improve your skills to express yourself creatively in the language of art?  Join us on the second Saturday of the month, (see dates below),  at Backstreet Bagels for sketch journaling workshops.  This series of classes will improve skills of observation and expression using a variety of art media for recording daily life experiences, travel experiences, and experiences in the wild.  With each class addressing separate skills, classes need not be taken sequentially, in a strict order.  Choose, (like a menu), the classes you wish to take.   Each class will conclude with suggested exercises to hone your skills and keep you motivated.
