February 4 through June 24
Thursdays, 10 AM – 12 PM
Location: Education Center in the Carriage House
Beginners and intermediate students are encouraged to attend. The Nature Drawing Class’s are an opportunity for students to look to Blithewold’s gardens and arboretum for inspiration to draw. Working from pictures and found natural objects, the class will focus on learning how to render color, texture, and design found in nature. A variety of art materials and techniques will be presented with colored pencils as the main medium.
Students are encouraged to bring their own personal art pencils. Supplementary materials will be available.
Guidelines will be respected for a safe experience. Sanitizer and wipes are available; social distancing in the classroom and porch will be practiced to support the safety and health concerns of all.
