ARTS Anonymous is an international organization designed to help artists achieve their creative potential. Our Springfield ARTS  Anonymous group meets the second Tuesday of each month from 1:30 to 2:45 in the library at the Creamery.

We discuss ways to get past blocks to our creativity and provide help and inspiring support for all types of artists including musicians, writers, painters, sculptors, jewelry makers, etc. 

Everyone is welcome. You may bring examples of your work to share. Join us on our mutual journeys to artistic freedom.

DARE TO DRAW with Tracy Bruton

"Have you ever wanted to learn to draw, to lose yourself in the magic that happens with a piece of paper and a drawing tool? Well, you CAN. Everyone can! In this class I will teach you how to see like an artist sees. If you can SEE it, you can draw it. Imagine being able to convincingly render anything that is placed in front of you. The class will be taught in bite-sized increments to guarantee success. You will be amazed by your progression. We will begin with Graphite but will eventually expand to charcoal, oil pastel, pen and ink, and more. All of your supplies will be provided." Contact Tracy by email here.
"We meet in my home for lessons. I also have classes for children." The cost is $30 per class.


Tracy also teaches at Lucid TLC Arts. See that listing below.
