Instructor: Cynthia Armstrong
Sketching can be a pleasant and powerful tool for studying nature. You don’t have to be an experienced scientist or an accomplished artist to be inspired to enjoy sketching and really ‘see’ the world around you. Through regular recording of observations and your feelings and thoughts in response to them, you will come away with skills that open the door to endless possibilities to learn about the environment and it’s beauty.
4 consecutive Mondays will give us time to explore a variety of techniques and materials. A combination of SCAL studio time and outdoor work will be scheduled, with locations to be announced.
