Freestyle Drawing Night

Mixed-Medium Freestyle Drawing Night! tickets can be purchased through this link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/freestyle-drawing-night-at-arthaus-tickets-32966011227 Chris Maggio ~ Instructor March 29th, 5:30-8:30 pm 3-Hour class - $30 per student Yes! It’s a “ME” night to create and do something colorful with no rules, just self expression! Bring your colored pencils, markers, charcoal, graphite, silverpoint, different colored or textured papers, wood panels, whatever you enjoy working on, or would like to try. Raid your kids’ crayon box. I’ll help you design your project, try new artistic things, or simply reinforce the creative process you want to be better at! “What do I need to bring?” If you don’t already have the toys and tools, I recommend stopping by an art store, such as Michaels (not affiliated, but they do have tons of great stuff!) and find something bright and creative that you have been wanting to try. Something you’re intimidated by! For three hours, on a normally-boring Wednesday night, you can begin your mastery and leap over that confidence hurdle! Bring a snack, a drink, and your earbuds and zone out while you create… Idea hints: Paint pens on glassware (Goodwill and DI have tons of unusual glassware that you can explore with, and it’s cheap!!) • Fine-line marker drawing/sketching on colored paper • woodburning on a wooden plaque or prefab wooden birdhouse (yes, it is a kind of drawing!) • Permanent markers on white canvas tennis shoes or white ball cap • paint pens on a picture frame or makeup case, or any dull object • there are endless things to do! Sometimes we just need someone to help us get it rolling.
