(AC Fall 2023) Total Essential Knowledge with Colin Matthes

 Registration is closed for this event

Drawing is a way of thinking. Like writing, drawing clarifies. It deepens our understanding. Join artist Colin Matthes for a Total Essential Knowledge (TEK) workshop, where he’ll demonstrate drawing as a tool to visualize and share knowledge. This workshop is aimed at lifetime learners and offers a fun, low-pressure environment. Over four sessions we will:

  • Learn drawing is for everyone! It is for anyone who cares to think or communicate. That’s you.
  • Find value in the ACT of drawing, the process.
  • Use drawing to research, remember, communicate, and figure things out
  • Learn to slow down and make decisions about what is most important
  • Make our own instructional drawings!



  • Paper, any kind will do, standard 8.5x11in copy paper works great
  • Marking tool(s), The simplest solution is a pencil or pen, but you can really use anything including markers, brushes and paint, etc.
  • Something to document your finished drawing, a scan works great, but a simple cell phone photo in good light will work as well.
