Do you love being outside, are you fascinated by the natural world, and love to draw?
Learn about the art of nature journaling! We will be doing a number of drawings en plein air (outside) observing our natural world from the smallest leaf to capturing the view of the landscape, and working in the studio to build our techniques and skills with a variety of natural subjects.
Leave with a sketchbook filled with nature inspired art and great memories of our Vermont summer days.
Campers are encouraged to bring a spiral bound 'mixed media' sketchbook (7x10 or 9x12)
