drawing with charcoal

There are few things in this world that bring me more satisfaction than making things with my hands. It’s true, I have an extremely unhealthy attachment to my computer, but there is nothing like the old-fashioned ways of making art. So, I’m really excited to have teamed up with dabble to bring you the “dabbler experience”, this particular experience was a drawing with charcoal class.

The class was held at One Strange Bird which I was stoked about because I cannot get enough of this place, and Nicole, the owner and teacher of the class, is so lovely and as it turns out, she and I have a ton of similar interests. An obsession with washi tape anyone?

Here a few snaps of some of the awesome handmade items in Nicole’s store. How cute is this place?

Check out the dabble site and if your city is lucky enough to host their classes, you need to start dabbling immediately, you won’t regret it!

    This is awesome! I’m seriously jealous because I have no artistic talent with my hands whatsoever. I can’t draw or make art with my hands to save my life.

    What a great class. As you might be able to tell from my blog, I love drawing. Whenever I see classes or drawing workshops like this one I try to sign up because I love the environment and going from drawing alone at my desk like I usually do, to being surrounded by other creatives having a fun time.

  4. So glad you shared this! I’m back in Chicago after 2.5 years away and I’m always looking for things to do, places to visit.
