A sketchbook can be a great way to access your creativity and express yourself. It can also be used as a tool for any food lover. 

In this workshop, you’ll tap into exploring cuisine through fun and playful exercises that everyone can do, even if you don’t have a drawing or art background. By using observation, note taking, sketching your meals or designing new recipes, you can access your creativity as well as your love of food. This element of playfulness can then influence and inspire your approach to food and all the elements of cooking.

What you’ll learn:

  • How a sketchbook can be used to observe and experiment with recipes

  • Techniques to access your creativity through play

  • Hands-on, simple sketching and watercolor pencil techniques that help you capture and express ideas

  • How creative sketchbook techniques and observation can add excitement and uniqueness to your cooking

This workshop is all about PLAY and exploration - NO ARTISTIC EXPERIENCE NEEDED!

February 19th, 1pm-4pm, IGIMO Art Station

What Esther's students say about her:

“Great opportunity to relax in art, explore new media and ways to express.” - Marnie

“I really enjoyed the class and trying something new. - Vera

“This class was so fun! Just as described. I had some doubts about how I would feel about my work, Esther made it really fun and free to make mistakes and just try something to see what happens.” - Susan

“I feel empowered to explore and create in ways I never have before. This is an entire identity shift.” - Blake

“Esther encouraged us to use our sketchbooks for ourselves. This was wonderfully freeing. A reminder not to let perfection get in the way of creativity “ - Jen

"I thought it was great! From the very first class I discovered parts of myself that I didn’t know and I was immediately intrigued and wanted to do more. I felt like I discovered my artist point of view and became less critical of myself.  I also felt inspired to try everything, which opened a lot of previously shut door of discovery." - Marshae

“Awesome teacher, would love to take another class with her.”  

"Esther is so amazing!! Her enthusiasm about illustration and philosophy on drawing every day have really rejuvenated me after being burnt out on drawing for school for so long."
