Meeting Room 115
Tuesday, Nov 23, 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 Observational drawing. 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-North, and Goodman Community Center to participate using a borrowed device.
