Did you know that small acts of creativity increase our overall health and wellbeing?

Unleash your inner artist in this dynamic session with Central Florida Community Arts (CFCArts) Teaching Artist JJ Gonzalez Acosta. During this program, Acosta will teach the basics of sketching using simple art techniques. Participants will observe the world around them before choosing an object to draw during this guided workshop. Sketching 101 is a class intended for adults interested in unlocking their creativity.

  • hold and control your pencil properly.

This program is presented by JJ Gonzalez Acosta and hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation in collaboration with CFCArts.

In accordance with CHWB guidelines, our programs will also be limited in capacity and rooms set to account for social distancing.
