Tugboat! The Big Mistakes Show

with special guest Samin Nosrat

Supplies: Paper, Pencil or Pen, Colors

Mistakes! They’re so hard. But they don’t have to feel bad. In fact, they can sometimes become something new and cool and help us learn. In today’s show we explore different things we can do when we make mistakes in the studio, the kitchen, and in life. First, draw a tugboat with WendyMac, who makes some coloring mistakes and figures out how to fix them. Then, chef extraordinaire Samin Nosrat (and her dog Fava) calls in to share a story of a mistake she made in the kitchen, how it made her feel, and how mistakes are often sparks of creativity. Make sure to watch through the credits for a hidden DrawTogether surprise!

If you don’t already subscribe, we really hope you’ll consider paying $6/month (or $60/year) for a DrawTogether Art Club membership and help keep DrawTogether classes free for all! You’ll receive bonus activities for kids, interviews, tips and recommendations direct from WendyMac. And if the subscription cost is a hardship or if you are an educator using DT, email us at kate@drawtogether.studio

This week, paid subscribers can look out for another Studio Dispatch on Sunday, featuring a DT-style Q&A with Samin about what matters most to her and some life advice for kids (and adults, too).
