Use the beauty of the nature around us as inspiration for your drawings! Drawing from nature involves careful observation combined with artistic expression. In this class, different methods of seeing and drawing will be explored in a series of exercises designed to create confidence, skill, and pleasure in the drawing process outdoors for artists of all levels. Capture the beauty of the outdoors in the early fall using graphite pencils and any additional dry drawing materials of your choice such as pastels, wax-based colored pencils, etc. Instruction will include nature drawing exercises with ample time to work on individual landscape, botanical, or still life nature drawings in the dry drawing medium of your choice. Individual instruction will be provided with an emphasis on promoting self-expression. Bring a folding chair and water bottle. A materials list can be found here.
