Event Description:



In a watercolor journal format, record impressions of the beauty of the natural world around us. We include watercolor, pen and graphite drawings. Enhance the pages with borders, plant prints, pen-work, writing, and more. With simple exercises in drawing and watercolor, plus other techniques, skills, awareness and sensitivity will grow. We will spend time outside, around the area. This workshop is appropriate for beginners, but all skill levels are welcome to this refreshing, personal art form, taught in a relaxing, encouraging atmosphere. Great for gardeners, travelers, and naturalists, too!
