Plein Air Drawing

April 19 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Wildflower meadow

Artists have long enjoyed the spoils of working outdoors, including capturing natural light, witnessing true color and movement in nature, and taking in fresh air and birdsongs. Aspiring naturalists can also benefit from slowing down to observe and document species. Become a keen observer and learn about composition, value, perspective and color through demonstration and practice. All levels welcome.

Space is limited and registration is required.


$95 per person
