We live in a culture that is bombarded with words and visuals. While the collective virtual reader/author presence craves snippets of information—tweets about word count and writing deadlines, the act of writing descriptive narrative requires unequivocal commitment and considerably more than 150 characters. Creating memorable stories takes time; creating unforgettable characters takes patience, imagination, and structure.
Mandy Jackson-Beverly is passionate about the arts, especially the link between observational drawing, developing unique characters, and writing descriptive prose, a process she calls The Art of Observing. She believes that creative chaos is invaluable, but must be balanced with certain rules of order, and done with our feet firmly planted on the ground.
Join Mandy for a day of creativity and fun while learning to flex your observational muscles. In this one-day workshop, you will learn how to use simple useable observational skills that will strengthen your creative process. This is done through drawing, writing, and conversation. No prior artistic experience is necessary.
