Sip and Sketch Holiday Art Class

Sip, sketch, and color at our holiday art class with archaeological illustrator Donna Walker. Learn how to draw the native plant Toyon Berry, also known as California Holly, then color your creation with Prismacolor, an oil-based color pencil that blends and looks like watercolor when finished. You’ll learn techniques to give your objects depth and definition – gone will be the flat-looking images, yours will look 3-D! Finish by turning your drawing into a personalized holiday card.

Tickets include all art supplies and 2 drinks per person. 21+ only
