Ages 6-16. Learn some basic warm up techniques and then dive into a drawing exercise with author/illustrator Emma FitzGerald that explores our feelings in a unique and accessible way.

Author/Illustrator Emma FitzGerald known for her loose, whimsical sketches of places and people, will read and share images from EveryBody’s Different on EveryBody Street.

There will be a chance to draw together, first learning basic warm up techniques using ‘blind contours’, not looking at a piece of paper but instead sketching a self portrait via the screen view/another participant/possibly an object in the room using one continuous line. 

Then we will dive into a drawing exercise that explores our feelings in a unique and accessible way. The exercise will hopefully spark conversation with family and friends about the range of feelings we can have in a day. 

Emma will emphasize letting go of negative thoughts/the need for a drawing to be perfect, instead a philosophy of ‘just keep going and see what happens’. Both children and adults will enjoy this workshop should adults choose to participate too! 

 List of Materials to have on hand: 

– at least 3 pieces of 8.5×11 paper, can be computer paper.

– a hard surface to draw on (either a table or clipboard or other hard surface)

– pen, preferably black fine liner. 

– preferred colouring materials
