Blue Moon Art Studio in Santa Barbara will host a workshop in the art of frottage (French: “rubbing”), 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3.

The class will be taught by Barbara Drucker, co-director of FORM Academy, and professor emerita, UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture.

Frottage is the technique of obtaining an impression of the surface texture of a material, such as wood, by placing a piece of paper over it and rubbing it with a soft pencil or crayon. An example would be brass rubbings.

Frottage is a creative process that artists of all levels can enjoy; no experience is necessary. Cost for the class is $45.

To register or for more information and class location, call Linda Grand 805-898-9313, or visit www.BlueMoonArtStudio.com.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
