Introduction to Drawing: “Drawing as a Mode of Nurturance”
w/ Mara Ramiez 

Creating worlds of our own making, outside of the subconscious, in this earthly plane, we will cultivate vulnerability and sharing in community, for the first time outside of digital boxes in over a year. This space in making and sharing will be all about learning how to tell our stories, while honoring them in their nuance, multiplicities, and complexity, through the medium of drawing.
