Sharon Virtue has joined the team as an artist in residence for Fairfax. She has over 20 years of experience as a teacher and community artist. This is the first in a series of five creative workshops led by people from different cultures in Marin County.

In this workshop we will learn some simple practices you can work on in a sketchbook in short periods of time to keep up a consistent creative practice.

Beginners are welcome, and artists who have experience and want to try some new approaches to reviving their practice will find this workshop inspiring.  We will awaken our imagination and courage to try new things, make a mess and be surprised.

Working with other people is always a way to share ideas and encourage each other in our creative endeavors. I look forward to creatively playing with you.

We will try some different techniques using water-based paints or colored pencils … or whatever else you have to work with. Watercolor sketchbook paper is important be sure to bring this along.

Materials are not included.   See website for materials list, or email for more information.
