Discover the joy in making visual recordings of experiences and sites in a sketchbook on location. In this 5-session outdoor workshop, students will learn the fundamentals of art such as, form, color, composition, and perspective. Our visual renderings will be done quickly with a focus on improving basic visual art skills and building confidence. Workshops will begin with a demo, followed with time dedicated towards practicing these methods and to answer any individual questions. No previous painting and drawing experience are required.

Bring warm clothes, sunblock and water and be inspired by our beautiful city.
