**Scarborough Residents will be prioratized. COMMUNITY+Connects with Workman Arts invites you to register for Art for Everyone! The audience is primarily beginner level learners, and no skill level is required. All that is needed from the participants is the eagerness to explore their inner artists and to challenge their inner critics. There is no age limit and everyone is welcome. Classes will be in English, however, if there is enough interest/demand I am also able to facilitate the same type of class for Spanish speakers.

Art For Everyone! is aimed at beginner-level learners. The course is rooted in my philosophy of decolonizing and democratizing art through simple prompts that incentivize conversation and creation.
