Relax with Drawing

Anyone can enjoy the enjoyable and calming art of drawing!

Each week we will have a series of easy activities which will help you relax the mind, develop your drawing skills, and tap into your creativity.  These fun exercises will include meditative and abstract sketching as well as more realistic drawing.

Tools we will need: HB Pencils: Also known as #2 pencil, Sharpeners, sketch book or paper. We will have supplies to use during the class, but bring your own if you want to take them home.

Clare Winslow is an interdisciplinary artist and teacher known for her prints and paintings relating to time, nature, and current events.  As a child and grandchild of Washington DC painters, Clare grew up enveloped in art and strongly believes in its ability to promote unity and transformation.

Her focus is on combining a broad range of interests: mark making, photography, digital imaging, graphic design and painting. Influences include two years working in Japan, childhood cartoons, contemporary abstraction, and a daily meditation practice.  According to the artist, “Each project challenges me to maintain a delicate balance between process and feeling.”

Clare teaches art live in the Washington DC area and online. She can easily be found at https://clarewinslow.com.
