Drawing is a “global” skill, which requires both hand and eye coordination. But it's a skill that can be learned. Teens and adults alike are welcome to a "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" workshop, using Betty Edward's classic text, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Hamilton-Wenham Public Library, 14 Union St., Hamilton. Teacher Bonnie Ashmore-Davis will provide guidance throughout the workshop. For more information or to register, contact Rebecca Shea at 978-468-5577 or email@example.com.
