tuesday night drawing club

In 2019, we could gather around the same worktable .

The tuesday night drawing club is not really a club. It’s an online community of adults who belong to each other in the pursuit of a drawing practice.

The weekly workshops are open to adults of all skill levels. Each session has a focus of study based in a drawing fundamental and is intended to inspire your own learning and practice.

The topics are designed to be random, so you can join anytime. Kristin will lead the work with her knowledge of the techniques, share some pro tips and provide references for further exploration, if needed. It has proven to be a deeper learning opportunity for those who also learn from each other.
