Inspiring Anne Ward Workshop

Thanks to all of the participants in our two Anne Ward iPad workshops. It was a great introduction to using an iPad to do drawings and paintings using the Procreate app. Special thanks to Martin Shinn for taking these pictures. The rose is an sample of the work he did during the class. Impressive and inspiring.
