Description

4 classes - 2 Tuesdays and 2 Thursdays, July 30, August 1, 6 and 8, 2019, 6:30-9pm

This class is a nature journaling and observational drawing class. We will be going outside into the gardens at the Center for Urban Horticulture with our sketchbooks to practice recording observations in the field. We will then use our field observations to work on the drawings further, using graphite and watercolor. The focus of the class will be practicing nature journaling and using this information from the field to create a more completed observational drawing.
