Six-Part Workshop - Did/Saw/Felt: A Process for Narrative Drawing
Join illustrator and cartoonist Lenora Yerkes for a six-part drawing workshop focused on stimulating creativity. You’ll learn techniques for quieting your internal editor, working through creative blocks, and organizing your thoughts into compelling narratives. In the first class, you’ll learn how to develop a daily practice, break out of an artistic rut, and learn inhibition-free techniques for drawing and creating. The remaining five class will help you put these teachings into practice. Our goal is to start you writing or drawing—and then to help you keep creating, no matter where you are or what you do. If you’ve ever wanted to draw or write but think you "can't," or if you struggle to create a steady flow of art, this workshop is for you! About Lenora: Lenora is an artist and writer whose work often eddies around urban scenes, buildings and flood imagery. Lenora studied printmaking at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, California and was the 2019 Gallery Resident at the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop in Washington DC. Her work is included in the forthcoming anthology, Drawing Power, published by Abrams ComicsArts (Fall 2019), and edited by Diane Noomin. She is currently at work on a long form visual narrative about the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Please note:This workshop takes place every Tuesday for six weeks. We will meet at 6:30 pm. The first class is 2 hours. The remaining five are 1 hour each.

This workshop is for people who want to draw but are stuck or doubt themselves. Can I attend just one of the sessions? Unfortunately, no. We think attendees will get the most out of the workshop by committing to six classes. What should I bring? We will provide pen, pencils, and paper, but if you have preferred tools (notebook, journal, pen, pencil, etc.) please bring them. What if I can’t afford to attend? We're offering one scholarship for this class. Please get in touch for more information. How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
