Nature Drawing Field Day, April 27: The Shrub Steppe in Bloom – Balsamroot and Rolling Foothills
Winter is thawing into Spring and it's a perfect time to get out in nature and draw.
In addition to our "Spring Thaw & Draw: Nature Journaling for Everyone!" series of Friday afternoon classes, Perri Howard and Mary Kiesau will also be offering two “Field Day” classes on Saturdays.
These fully field-based classes are geared towards those who would enjoy an immersive experience hiking and drawing in nature. If you have taken a class with us before or have done some drawing on your own, the Field Day classes will be a perfect fit for you. These longer classes will combine a more in-depth natural history excursion with more detailed field-based drawing. They are designed for those of you who are fairly comfortable with drawing tools through either previous classes or creative practice on your own.
The two classes are:
April 27: The Shrub Steppe in Bloom – Balsamroot and Rolling Foothills SCROLL DOWN TO REGISTER FOR THIS CLASS
May 18: Riparian Rendezvous - Woodlands, Rivers, and Majestic Mountains
Both classes will meet from 10am-4pm and cost $90. Combined with drawing in the field, we'll spend time gently hiking, learning about many of the Methow's plants, birds and animals, a little geology, maybe even clouds. Drawing practice will include things both near and far, and cover a wide variety of techniques like creating depth and perspective, giving your shapes form, texture and expression, shading, drawing "landscapitos," and working with color. We'll work at a slightly more advanced pace.
Space is limited to 12 people per class, and registration is required. Register here or by contacting Mary Kiesau at 509-551-6714, email@example.com or Perri Howard, 509-557-2299, firstname.lastname@example.org. Contact Perri if you have any questions about which class is right for you.
All materials, including pens, pencils, paper, and teaching tools, will be included, but feel free to bring your own materials if you’d like. More details will be sent before each class.
