Art In Nature

This five day, four night art workshop is designed for beginners and for continuing learners to find the art in nature. We will cover the methods including pencil, ink, colored pencils, watercolors and photography.

  • If you can write your name, you can learn to draw.
  • It doesn’t matter how young or old you are. I was past 40 when I started taking art classes. Grandma Moses was in her 70’s. I have taught young children and teenagers, as well as adults, and they do very well.
  • If you do calligraphy, you already know some of the skills needed for drawing.
  • If you already know how to draw, you will still enjoy the activities we will be doing in this workshop
  • In this workshop, we will emphasize process; results will follow.
  • All inclusive accomodations, meals, instructor fees and workstations.
