Study Room A
Tuesday, Nov 16, 1:30pm to 2:30pm

Join us for this five-week drawing class with Heather C. Williams, author of Drawing as a Sacred Activity.

Heather C. Williams earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Art and Humanities at Wisconsin State University-Oshkosh, although she began drawing early in her life as a way to learn about the world around her and within.  Now, she invites you to join her in exploring the courage that it takes to be curious about what is going on around us in the world today and learn more about your deeper SELF.

Come embark on a journey of self-discovery through art as the author helps you become more acquainted with the three kinds of drawing (Observational, Self Observational and Intuitional). You will learn to listen to the deeper part of yourself, to temporarily suspend judgement and just BE, while you learn to love and accept yourself exactly as you are right now (in the midst of change).​

All drawing workshop events will be held via Zoom. You may participate using your own device, or visit Alicia Ashman Library, Goodman South Madison Library, ​Meadowridge Library, Sequoya Library, NewBridge Madison-East, and Goodman Community Center to participate using a borrowed device.

Dear Azula, I Have a Crush on Danny Phantom is a crossover of our coming of age universes. Exploring the interplay of adolescence and media, Dear Azula is a masterclass on how Generation Z see themselves reflected on screen, how they find themselves in characters when the world does not grant them the possibility. 

These poems pay homage to the cartoon characters who made us the wicked lovestruck people that we are. These ubiquitous stories of teen ghost boys and water bending women gave wonder to a generation raised by recession. In illustrious villains we learned our own glamour. In chiseled chins and 2D teeth we learned desire. In Dear Azula, I Have a Crush on Danny Phantom we bring the early 2000s renaissance of animation into our modern lives to unpack, celebrate, revel, and remember.
