Mindful Drawing: Just Lines!

May 10th, 6 PM

In this workshop, participants will learn several simple methods of drawing only lines to create a complete non-representational artwork. Once you learn this method, you will be able to create your own works as either a mindfulness practice or as a creative practice (or both!)

This workshop is appropriate for anyone, from complete beginners to more experienced artists looking to try something new. You don’t even need to be able to draw straight lines!

Ever wonder what to do with all the dandelions that have cropped up on your lawn?  Put away the pesticides and pull them up to the table to learn more about what these, and many other “weeds” have to offer us!  Get nutritionally inspired with recipes using these and some of Emily’s favorite pollinator plants.   Come with questions and thoughts about the plants that plague you, and ones you love, for a fun hour-long discussion on the power of plants in our diet.
