Drawing Nantucket History: Collaboration with AAN with Steven Farem

Nantucket’s history is like none other. Seemingly frozen in time, the island’s rich history has created an environment full of iconic landmarks and sights.

This drawing workshop explores the iconic sites and history of Nantucket through drawing.  Take a peek behind the curtain as each day we will draw at a different NHA Historic site.

All skill levels are welcome!  The goal of this workshop is to provide novices and seasoned drawers with an opportunity to discover and refine their own unique skills while enjoying this magical island.  All materials provided.

This class is a collaboration with the Artist Association of Nantucket, and we be held at NHA’s Historic sites.  You will be notified where to meet the first day.


Maximum class size: 8
