Drawing: colored pencil on toned papers

Do you often find yourself gazing upon a meadow or a wildflower, wishing you could capture its hue and elegance on paper? In this class students will learn basic to refined drawing techniques, explore color and values, practice creating textures, and create new pathways to self expression. Aspiring naturalists can also benefit from slowing down to observe and document species. Become a keen observer and learn through demonstration and practice. All levels welcome.

This class will be held on-site in an outdoor classroom setting with a limit of 10 participants. Registration is required.
