SEPT 6 // WATERCOLOR SKETCHING MOUNTAINS AT DONNER LAKE

82.00

5-7:30P

Nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountains, we are surrounded by beauty and inspiration.  Sketching outdoors is a wonderful way to slow down from the hectic pace of daily life and study the world around us.  Learn techniques of using pen and watercolor to create quick, loose interpretations of the mountain landscapes observed in the field.  Local artist, Claire Lawrenson will teach her methods of field sketching, as well as tips & tricks to help participants feel comfortable leaving the convenience of home to sketch out in the world. Great for all levels, from those who have never painted with watercolors to experienced artists interested in venturing out of the studio. Each participant will receive their very own outdoor watercolor kit ($55 value) to take home.

camp chair or blanket to sit on

NOTE:

ABOUT CLAIRE LAWRENSON

Claire uses an active imagination, and a palate of watercolors, to capture the grand vistas and intricate details seen while adventuring in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.  She fell in love with plein-air painting while challenging herself to make art outside for 100 days, in an effort to combine her two loves - nature & painting. Initially intimidated by the challenges of painting outdoors, Claire fell in love with the fast pace, and the loose style necessitated by quick sketches done while hiking, kayaking, or from a chairlift. Claire resides in Truckee, and when not making art or enjoying the outdoors, she can be found curled up with a cup of tea, and a good book.
