Anna Podris creates vivid paintings inspired by dreams, from the world around her, and from active play in her sketchbooks. Join her as she guides participants through the process of using a sketchbook and journal for capturing ideas and keeping them flowing. The first class is dedicated to sketchbook techniques, inspiration, and idea generation. The second class considers how to apply that creativity and free thinking to starting a painting.
This virtual workshop consists of two 90-minute Zoom sessions (Saturdays, December 12 and 19, 1:30–3 pm each day). All skill levels welcome; most appropriate for age 16 and up.
