An intimate journey into the sketchbook world and how drawing can offer a moment of stillness and peace within an often chaotic world. This weekly drop-in workshop offers a welcoming and supportive space for both beginners and seasoned sketchers to draw together. Focus will be on nature journaling, but any type of drawing is welcome. Prompts will be offered as well as guidance. Each session we will jump down a “rabbit hole” and study in depth one plant or landscape element or learn about different brushes, paints, papers, and other art supplies. Leslie will also show nature journals kept by different artists for inspiration. For supplies bring a current sketchbook, if you are working in one, travel-size water color set and brush, or just a pencil or pen and paper. This workshop will run on Thursdays: December 1, 18, and 15 in the Community Library’s Learning Commons. Leslie Rego has drawn in journals for years. She carries sketchbooks and paints with her while enjoying the national forest and will take time to draw and paint landscapes and flowers on her many hikes.

Thriving Through the Holidays Using the Community Resiliency Model with Laurie Strand @ The Community Library
6:00 pm
The Community Resiliency Model (CRM)© trains community members to help themselves and others within their wider social network. The goal of the CRM is to create “resiliency-focused” communities that share a common understanding of the impact of chronic and/or everyday stress on the nervous system. During this introductory session, participants will learn to use three strategies based on human biology and neuroscience to create new pathways that strengthen the ability to cope and bounce back faster when dealing with stress, and to grow the resilience that is already present. The program will be livestreamed and available to watch later. The recording will be available until January 2, 2023. Register to attend at www.comlib.org. This session will be led by national trainer, Laurie Strand, LCSW. Laurie is a licensed clinical social worker who developed Resiliency Rising, a consulting and educational organization focused on offering individuals and organizations tools to thrive in life. Using the research-based Community Resiliency Model, Resiliency Rising offers tailored support including group workshops, follow up consultation, and leadership support for schools, organizations, teams, individuals and employees to reach their full potential.
