Please join us for one class or all four!

Classes are designed for you to attend a single class or all four in the series.  Each class will start outdoors with about 1 1/2 hours of walking, observing, and field journaling with a wonderful naturalist lesson by Mary Kiesau. Then, we’ll move to Perri’s studio at TwispWorks for more drawing lessons and practice.

We’ll pick field locations that are easy to access for all levels of mobility. The indoor session will include fundamental drawing tips and lessons like creating depth and perspective, giving your shapes form and texture, drawing “landscapitos,” and working with color.

All materials, including pens, pencils, paper, and teaching tools, will be included, but feel free to bring your own materials if you’d like.   Details will be sent before each class with what to bring and where to meet.  Join us and learn how to draw and keep a field journal, from the ground up!
