Don't skip this one, even if you "can't draw"! The teaching artist is a poet who "can't draw" either but has been using drawing and coloring as a way to enter the state that leads to creative writing. In this class, you'll get to try out several ways to approach writing through drawing, including activities from the book Syllabus, by cartoonist Lynda Barry, as well as other sources. By the end of the class, you'll have many pages of sketches and stories, at least one polished story ready to share, and some new ways to get into the creative work you want to do.
