Sketchbooks provide a home for image gathering and an outlet for personal expression. The intent of this class is to engage students to express themselves through their sketchbooks and artwork. Techniques addressed will be pen and ink drawing, observational drawing, watercolors, collage, and photography, to name a few.
This workshop meets twice. The second session will be held Saturday, March 2 at 2pm.

Panoramic in scope, Away is the epic and intimate story of young Lillian Leyb, a dangerous innocent, an accidental heroine. When her family is destroyed in a Russian pogrom, Lillian comes to America alone, determined to make her way in a new land. When word comes that her daughter, Sophie, might still be alive, Lillian embarks on an odyssey that takes her from the world of the Yiddish theater on New York’s Lower East Side, to Seattle’s Jazz District, and up to Alaska, along the fabled Telegraph Trail toward Siberia. All of the qualities readers love in Amy Bloom’s work–her humor and wit, her elegant and irreverent language, her unflinching understanding of passion and the human heart–come together in the embrace of this brilliant novel, which is at once heartbreaking, romantic, and completely unforgettable.
