Join Edmonton artist and illustrator, Alex Labarda, as he guides you through an enjoyable and relaxing drawing adventure that requires no previous drawing ability. Just get that pencil or marker moving in your own way and enjoy the wonderful benefits of art making. We will be using ideas inspired by the work of master cartoonists the legendary Dr. Seuss and Rune Goldberg, who illustrated humorous over-the-top inventions, gadgets and machines to do simple tasks. We hope you enjoy creating your own fun invented doodle!
Materials required – pencil, paper, black and colored markers (optional)
