Local Learning: Creating a Daily Art Practice -- Sketching w/ Graphite

Develop your sketching practice (or commit to a new one!) by working with water-soluble graphite through exercises designed to stimulate creativity, and get hands moving across a page with instructor Ellen Sherman. Water-soluble graphite is a portable, non-toxic art supply that makes quick sketching easy and is an ideal tool to incorporate into a sketching habit. This class is presented in partnership with the Ann Arbor Art Center.

Ellen Sherman is an abstract artist working in Ann Arbor, MI. Her process is water-based and intuitive, and was largely developed during her 10 years of living in Miami, Florida. There she kindled her love of water and a deep fascination and respect for its movement and moods. This is explored in her sketches and paintings where she relies on water as the vehicle for the pigment. Ellen received her BFA in Studio Art from Michigan State University and has also studied at Arizona State University. When not painting Ellen can be found hiking with her husband and dog, teaching workshops and tackling various home improvement projects.

At Literati Bookstore, we believe that learning is a necessary pleasure. We believe that reading makes us not only curious and knowledgeable, but also kinder. We created Local Learning at Literati because we wanted to create accessible opportunities for learning in our community: affordable, welcoming to beginners, unfussy, and taught by passionate, dedicated experts.
