When your writing feels stuck or slow, drawing (yes, drawing pictures!) can help you re-enter your work with joy and creativity—especially if you "can't draw." You won't learn how to draw in this class (the teaching artist truly does not know how to draw). Instead, you'll try some ways to use the act of drawing to enter and enhance your writing.

Drawing can give us new ways to notice and record, to come to new ideas, to explore and organize thoughts and stories, and to invite surprises. This class will be generative and supportive. It's suited for seasoned writers who want to refresh their writing practice, as well as newer writers looking for a way to start.
