It’s not often that Megan Perkins is without a sketchbook of some kind nearby.
A prolific artist, Perkins has been sketching her friends and scenes from her daily life for years.
According to her Spokane Art School bio, “Art is a path into deeper understanding and communion with both places and people. It is a way of holding up the quotidian of life as worthy of attention and worth sharing with others.”
Those looking to learn to appreciate the little things can join Perkins on a Garland Sketch Crawl on July 10.
During the two-hour class, participants will sketch Garland neighborhood landmarks while learning to sketch on location and add color with watercolors, colored pencils or markers.
