Location: Meet at Valley Green Inn on Forbidden Drive

Course Fee: $24.00

Meet at Valley Green Inn to sketch the landscape in the park. Bring your favorite sketch medium, and get some basics on outdoor drawing: how to get good lights and darks, simplify shapes, and choose a subject of focus. We will do several sketches to get a feel for what inspires you and Marcia will share some helpful advice on what to look for, supplies you might want to add later on, and how to pack once on your own.


Bring the following supplies: your favorite (dry) sketch medium: pencils, charcoals, pastels; sketch pad; erasers; folding chair (you may be holding your pad in your lap); hat. Optional: portable easel, camera. Bring your lunch for discussion afterward.
Fee: $24.00
