  • “When my daughter was about seven years old, she asked me one day what I did at work. I told her I worked at the college – that my job was to teach people how to draw. She stared at me, incredulous, and said, ‘You mean they forget?’ “~Howard Ikemoto

    Let's get together & remember!

    This is a class for people who think they can't draw. There are techniques we will use which have been developed to help us connect to the right side of our brains.*
    The right side is our creative side, the left is our logical, analytical side. To be able to draw realistically involves turning off the left & tapping into our right brain.
    With the help of a glass of pinot & artist Connie Festo Lafond, we will learn several ways to keep the left side out of our artistic efforts & stay on the right side, in this fun class.

    "This was a lot of fun. Connie did a great job breaking down some good concepts on how to really ease up, and just draw. I felt like I learned a lot, and had a great time!"

    Hi melody, I have not received your emails. I wold love to attend, if I get out of work on time. If I am the only one attending I understand you have to cancel. If there are others attending would it be ok if I show up spur of the moment? This class sounds fun. :). Mj
