October Special – Fall Into Drawing

Join us every Sunday in October for a special drawing workshop at Jersey Made.

Fall into Drawing

October 6, 13, 20, & 27 from 1:30 to 3:30

Teacher:  Holly Doyle

Several years ago I took a workshop series called 3D:Your Whole Life based on the book and workbook.    One of the assignments included an exercise from a book by Sybil MacBeth called Praying in Color.    Her ideas really caught on for me and I began using my drawing as a way to think about those who needs my prayers and good thoughts or to express my thankfulness.   It helps me to consider those who are on my mind and in my heart.

This class was inspired by my enjoyment of the Praying in Color book.   Although purchasing the book is not required for class, it certainly is recommended reading.  I will cover a variety of basic drawing techniques that are intended for the beginner or novice (maybe advanced students will pick up some tips as well).  Come enjoy learning some of the techniques I have tried out – from doodles to zentangles and everything in between.   There is much for us to learn each week whether you use this class for praying or just making art.

Workshop fee:   $15 which includes all the supplies that you will need.   If you have a favorite drawing tablet or implements of color then feel free to bring them along but I have plenty to share with everyone! (Doesn’t everyone own more than 10 colored pencils sets?  hehe)

Please RSVP to RecycledArtist83@gmail.com or call Jersey Made at 609-914-1536.   The class size will be limited to we need to know you are coming!!
