MARCH 18 // MIXED MEDIA NATURE DRAWING

48.00

11 - 2:30P

In this introductory drawing workshop, local artist Anke Hass will guide students through developing the skill to draw from observation and translating the natural world to the two dimensional surface. Using the formal elements of line, shape, texture, composition, and value we will experience and discuss the process of building a drawing. By practicing a variety of methods and using a variety of drawing materials, we will develop a more complete understanding of the visual language needed to express different objects in nature.  Exposure to a diversity of nature-based imagery including animals, trees and plants will serve as examples and motivation. This class is intended for those who have never drawn before or the seasoned sketcher, painter or artist looking to develop a new set of skills. 

"Observation, curiosity and creativity are skills that you can develop. Learn to observe deeply and open yourself to the wonder of inquiry and investigation. Embrace what you do not know as a point of departure to explore the mystery of the world." - Nature Drawing and Journaling by John Muir Laws
