The Art and Science of Nature Sketching and Journaling with Patricia Savage
This workshop combines science and art to help develop the beginner student’s skills as a naturalist and artist. Students practice “intentional curiosity” by digging deeper into the natural history of their subject, asking questions, drawing what they see, and writing about what they find and feel.
Students draw a variety of subjects, from plants to landscapes. To help students feel more comfortable about drawing, they receive lessons in blind contour, contour drawing, gesture drawing, positive shapes and negative spaces, measuring, and composing the subject.
Supplies are included.
