Children's Librarian Dave Burbank hosts Takoma Park Maryland Library's popular drawing workshop.
A mostly unstructured self-guided 'class' kids who like to draw can hang out and work on whatever they feel like drawing. Tips and tricks can be shared as well as drawing prompts for those who 'don't know what to draw'.
Kids who feel like sharing can let their work be displayed on the document camera, and observers can offer their thoughts and inspirations based on the work that is being done.
This is not a class on how to draw but a workshop on why to draw and how to not stop drawing and never worry about if something is 'good' or 'bad' so long as you are learning.
In person at the new Takoma Park MD Library location 7505 New Hampshire Avenue (the former Salvation Army store).

From the author of the New York Times bestselling Timmy Failure series and the Pearls Before Swine comic strip series comes an unforgettable and heartwarming story Looking Up.
About the Book:
A quirky and heartwarming middle grade novel about a girl struggling with loneliness and the curveballs of life—featuring black and white illustrations throughout. This story from comic genius Stephan Pastis is equal parts touching and hilarious, and is sure to resonate with any child who has ever felt like they don't quite fit in!
Living alone with her mother in a poorer part of town, Saint—a girl drawn to medieval knights, lost causes, and the protection of birthday piñatas—sees the neighborhood she has always known and loved disappearing around her: old homes being torn down and replaced by fancy condos and coffee shops. But when her favorite creaky old toy store is demolished, she knows she must act. Enlisting the help of Daniel “Chance” McGibbons, a quiet, round-faced boy who lives across the street (and whose house also faces the wrecking ball), Saint hatches a plan to save what is left of her beloved hometown.
On the surface, Looking Up is a story about a quirky and hilarious girl named Saint who readers will love meeting and spending time with. But beneath the surface of this story is a tender, sometimes heartbreaking, but always hopeful story about a little girl's struggle with loneliness after the death of her father.
