Introducing, Blackberry Master Classes!
class 01: “COFFEEHOUSE DRAWING” WITH STAN EMMERT
SO, YOU WANT TO DEVELOP SOME NEW SKILLS!
We are excited to announce a new series we are “beta testing” so-to-speak. We are calling it our “Coffeehouse Master Class” series. In short, we realized that we have incredibly talented people right here in our community. We also realized that we have numerous people that are eager to explore an unknown hobby, itch an old interest, or master new skills. Our first class?
with stan eMMERT
For those of you that frequent Blackberry in Glen Ellyn, you have likely noticed a fairly fit gentlemen sketching on one of the high-tops in the afternoons. This is Stan Emmert. Stan is predominantly known around time as a fitness guru and personal trainer. What most people don’t know about Stan is that he is foremost an artist. Before going full-time as a trainer, Stan worked for numerous years in the advertising and agency world as an illustrator and graphic designer. And while kettle bells and planks may be his vocation these days, Stan continues to hone his drawing skills via whatever appears in front of him – largely in coffeeshops. Well, largely in his favorite coffeeshop!
