Artistic inspiration surrounds us in nature. This drawing course provides an opportunity to create artwork from a variety of subjects found outdoors. Each session focuses on a different hands-on project including still life, landscape and wildlife subjects. Classes begin with a short lesson and demonstration followed by guided studio time to work on drawing assignments. Basic drawing techniques using graphite and colored pencils are incorporated throughout.  Students may choose to work in graphite, drawing pencils or both and must supply their own materials.   The instructor provides most still life items and photos to draw.  However, participants may be asked to bring items for one or two sessions.   All levels are welcome.

Materials: Bring a set of graphite drawing pencils, or a set of 72 Prismacolor Premier Soft Core colored pencils (recommended), pad of drawing paper, kneaded eraser, battery operated eraser.
