Enjoy the local landscape and learn basic sketching skills. Each class will feature a mini-lesson on one subject related to landscape drawing (e.g. line and form, perspective, composition, or focal point), and plenty of individual on-site instruction. We will meet at a different location each week. Come dressed to be outdoors (bug spray, hat, jacket if its cool, etc.)
Required materials will be a sketchbook (at least 9 x 12) and drawing pencils (2B, 4B, and 6B preferred). If you have other drawing materials of your own or want to use an easel, you may bring them.
