We can’t draw — it’s excruciating. But someone once told us to sketch merely what we see, without telling ourselves it’s a person or tree or whatever. That’s been surprisingly helpful.

Local superstar painter Rachel Bess, who successfully depicts the human hand and uses oil paint and the whole nine yards, visits Desert Broom Library on Tuesday, June 13, to lead a free class in Learning to Draw from Observation. We literally can’t tell the photos from the paintings on Bess’ Facebook page, and their haunting beauty surpasses their faithfulness, so any wisdom she can impart is valuable as all hell.

See the world from 4 to 5 p.m. at 29710 North Cave Creek Road. Registration is required
