Drawing and Read Along with Emma FitzGerald

Monday, August 9 / 10:30am

Illustrator/author Emma FitzGerald is known for her whimsical sketches, and will read and share images from “EveryBody’s Different on EveryBody Street” (Sheree Fitch). You will have a chance to draw with Emma. First, you will learn some basic warm up techniques, and then dive into an exercise that explores your feelings in a unique and accessible way.

This online workshop is perfect for children and adults, and we hope the exercise will spark conversation about the range of feelings we can have in a day. Prepare your materials before our session and have fun drawing.
