As kids drawing was usually a fun activity that almost all of us enjoyed, whether at school or at home. But growing up so many of us drop the habit of drawing and we often become inhibited with pen and paper. 

In this workshop you will learn a series of drawing exercises to get back in touch with the sheer pleasure of drawing!

From observation drawings to doodling and patterns, explore new ways to push your drawing skills or just get back in touch with your own pleasure for drawing. You’ll feel like a 10 year old again in no time!
