Out of this world fun at the Drop In!

What a great time we had learning to draw super cool aliens and warriors using gesture and simple shapes in this open Drawing and Painting for Teens class. There were enough people to run out of chairs! We gave away prize packs with Marvel calendars, free comics and Walking Dead stickers too. If you wanna be a part of the awesomeness, keep an eye on or register there to be added to our mailing list! Cannot wait to do another one!
