Fall Leaf Drawing Workshop

Monday, November 11 (10 am-2pm)

Leader: Tina Thieme Brown

Members $ 32; nonmembers $ 44

There is a long tradition of naturalists keeping field notes. Often their written notes are accompanied by drawings.

If you want to learn how to add sketches to your field observations, we invite you to join an artist/illustrator, whose sketchbooks are filled with drawings of plant life, for a workshop at our Woodend Sanctuary. Tina will lead you on a walk in the woods, where you will carry along your sketchbook and reflect on the changing season. Returning to an indoor classroom, she will guide you through the steps to create a line drawing of a leaf, with a hint of fall color. The only experience required is a love of nature, and a desire to look closely at the seasonal changes in our native trees. A suggested art supply list will be provided with registration confirmation.
