Authors Speak Series: Drawing Workshops

Oct 25, 2021
Authors Speak Series: Drawing as a Sacred Activity

Madison Public Library, in partnership with NewBridge, and Goodman Community Center, invites community members to the first session of our Authors Speak Series: a book talk about Drawing as a Sacred Activity by Heather C. Williams. These events are geared toward seniors, but all are welcome!

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).​
