I just found out about this event. It is my first time attending, I’m not sure if they had one in the past, I couldn’t find a review, but it is free so I thought to give it a try and I signed up. The workshop officially begins April 23rd and runs through May 4th. Each day you’ll get an email with links to the two sessions of the day. You’re free to do as many of the sessions as you’d like, from all to just a couple. They give a list of supplies per class, but you are able to use whatever supplies you have on hand. Please come back I’ll post my sketches late on.  Sketchbook Revival here I come! **All sessions will be available until May 18th so there is plenty of time. I think this means that you can not download the classes.

The range of skills vary and I sometimes feel like a pre-school girl, but I’m happy to know that I can grow and achieve pieces that I feel proud of, even when I’m also capable…

I have always loved art, the colour, the textures, the way it makes me feel. I wish I could have joined a class early on, but life went on and I didn’t have the opportunity to do it, but instead of keeping on wishing I decided to change my reality and I’m so excited to share with you that in April of 2017 I finally did it! Yes, sometimes those feelings that pull you back are not the ones to hold on to. I will be sincere by telling you that I had also encountered moments of regret regarding the time that I spent wishing and not learning, but I have put them aside by keeping on enjoying the present moment.  I’m still a beginner and I know I have a long journey ahead of me, but I’m enjoying every minute. This is the first post of many more to come. and I invite…
