Art of Trees: Drawing and Painting in Nature   

Drawing outdoors is a relaxing pastime. In this class, weather permitting we will sketch and paint trees in a park in Brookline. You'll explore the botanical form, horticultural details, and natural history of trees while capturing their beauty. We'll observe and sketch shapes and forms that make each tree unique and then progress to more complete drawings. Using pencil as a primary medium and watercolor to add washes, you'll learn to lay down markings that describe shape, texture, and value while also exploring the effects you can create with water, pigment, and light. On rainy days, we'll meet on Zoom using leaves and branches as our inspiration. A supply list will be emailed upon registration.
