Help Fund Our 2023 Library Campaign!

With the 2023 publication of the new edition of our first book, now called The Joy of Drawing A Beginner’s Manual, we will be launching a campaign to make the book broadly available through libraries which will be the focus of our activities.  It will also be available through Amazon as an e-book and trade paperback.

Our Distribution Plan

Our plan is to expand the  program to libraries throughout the San Mateo County Library system from East Palo Alto to Half Moon Bay.  This will require training others to deliver our workshops and classes based on the book.

From there we will branch out to libraries throughout the Peninsula and beyond, including your local library!

The new book includes a downloadable workbook as well as YouTube video demonstrations that can be downloaded for each chapter.  Thus the beginner will have every possible chance to be successful in their quest to learn to draw!

Along with the book, our campaign includes introducing new people to the joys they can experience through learning to draw with the scheduled workshops in the new Atherton Library in January and February.

This campaign aligns perfectly to our mandate to make our books and services broadly available to underserved communities and people of all ages and backgrounds, bringing them to the joy that learning to draw can bring.
