Join us for this sketching workshop centered around nature in winter. In this workshop we learn first-hand what makes nature in winter so special. Participants will learn how to identify nature in the winter and will learn drawing techniques they can use to record observations outdoors. We will begin indoors with a tutorial into observational drawing along with some drawing activities. With our new skills we will take a hike together and learn how to record and sketch our observations out in nature. We’ll end our workshop back indoors to share our findings with each other over some hot beverages. Note: All are welcome. Drawing experience or none. Dress warmly. Gloves and appropriate footwear are recommended.
