First Thursdays @ University Art on J Street, 10-1. Register for 1 or more workshops: email me at See FB for new sketches, post your sketches. If you’re interested in a Thursday evening class, let me know.

UArt_Jst If you’ve ever said, “I can’t draw,” I promise you, you can.

It’s a skill- like playing the piano- endlessly satisfying by just trying. It’s more about taking the time to look than it is about “talent.”  And if you already draw, come join us for a lovely meander around the midtown area.


Below the photo are 2 sketches of Sandhill Cranes at sunrise. I arrived in the dark, waiting, and started the sketch before sunrise, to the cacophony of thousands of birds.
