Girls study a bug with a magnifying glass

Four Saturdays in April  (2nd, 9th, 16th, 30th, no class on the 23rd) Time: 1 – 3 pm

At the Burchfield Nature and Art Center in West Seneca, NY.

Explore nature as we work indoors and out when the weather is nice, from real subjects and photos. Share my field sketchbooks from England and New York. Learn how to make your own easy field sketch journal! Learn ‘drawing from life’ techniques that will help you next time you are out in nature and want to capture something on paper. Work in your  field sketchbook using real nature objects as we learn how to draw and paint them. Learn how to use pencil, watercolor pencil and watercolor in creative ways to embellish your sketchbook pages. Adults and mature young students are welcome. We will sketch and learn in the park if weather permits.
