Join us to honor Martin Luther King Jr. Day with Taylor K. Shaw, creator of Black Women Animate, and artist Michelle Alfonso. They’ll share their creative journeys, then Alfonso will lead a drawing exercise using Procreate on iPad with Apple Pencil. You’ll use a template to experiment with colors and brushstrokes, then personalize your card with a message dedicated to a hero you admire.
