Register early for an opportunity to participate in a free adult drawing workshop at the West Orange Public Library! On Thursday, November 19th, I'll be simplifying the art of drawing through demos and exercises aimed to make drawing accessible and understandable. Not everyone can draw a stick figure, but you can learn!
My experience and background teaching drawing stem from many influences, in particular partly from Betty Edwards' Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, as well as from former artists, Nancy Bossert, Jerome Witkin, Gary Trento, and illustrator John Thompson. I'm grateful to the NJ State Council of the Arts / Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts and administered by the Essex County Division of Cultural and Historic Affairs, as well as the West Orange Arts Council for funding this free workshop series: Art for Everyone.
Space is limited. Registration can be done through the library website: wopl.org or by calling 973-736-0198.
Jennie Traill Schaeffer
Sometimes called the Kitchen God's Artist, I'm balancing mothering two energetic sons, a big mutt Ringo, making and teaching art. TraillWorks is the apron under which I create and teach. My own art develops mostly in my West Orange home studio, but is sometimes spurred through my teaching, which takes place at Oh! Canary Studio, located in Maplewood, NJ.
