An intimate journey into the sketchbook world and how drawing can offer a moment of stillness and peace within an often chaotic world.
This weekly drop-in workshop offers a welcoming and supportive space for both beginners and seasoned sketchers to draw together. Focus will be on nature journaling, but any type of drawing is welcome. Prompts will be offered as well as guidance. Each session we will jump down a “rabbit hole” and study in depth one plant or landscape element or learn about different brushes, paints, papers, and other art supplies. Leslie will also show nature journals kept by different artists for inspiration.
For supplies bring a current sketchbook, if you are working in one, travel-size water color set and brush, or just a pencil or pen and paper. This workshop will run on Thursdays: December 1, 18, and 15 in the Community Library’s Learning Commons.
