Art Classes Notes:

Share your love of art and nature with fellow sketchers or painters. Sign up for Sketchbook Journal, or Watercolor Journal, or both! Each class will begin with a nature walk through the Garden led by artist/instructor Carl Stoveland. The purpose of the walk is to give participants the opportunity to take reference photos with their phone or tablet to use in the class. The group will then move indoors, where the instructor will start with a quick demo topic then guide the class through the drawing or painting process, showing how explorations can be recorded and translated into a journal. Classes are for adults only and open to all levels. Participants should bring pencils, pens, paints (whatever they like to work with really) sketchpad or watercolor pad, a journal, and their cell phone or tablet.
