Inktober in October

Have you heard of Inktober? It’s where folks challenge themselves to do 31 ink drawings in 31 days and post their drawings on social media using the hashtag #inktober. We will have a drop in studio at the Zillman Art Museum on October 15th from 11am to 2 pm where you can practice your drawing skills with high quality micron pens or try some different nibs with pen and ink drawing. There will be a still life set up in the classroom for folks to draw. Feeling less confident about your drawing skills, try the doodling style Zentangle.  We will have square paper and sharpies for doodling. This drop-in event is for all ages but older kids and adults may have more fun! All supplies provided by ZAM.
