July 19, 2022: Sketching Garden Flowers
Learn to look for and render basic flower shapes from a variety of perspectives. We’ll also practice painting leaves and stems, with an eye toward mixing fresh greens and adding shadows. This session will include a demo/paint along of a summer flower garden montage.
August 2, 2022: Making a Vacation Map
Capture your travels with a vacation map. We’ll review parts of a map, discuss ways to incorporate unique elements from your location to convey a sense of place, and look at ways to include your experience on the map. Demo/paint along will include ways to paint water, land features, and borders.
August 23, 2022: Vegetable Explosion
The late summer harvest will be coming on fast with an explosion of shapes, colors, and textures. We’ll capture an abundance of vegetables from the garden and farmer’s market, focusing on ways to create a pleasing composition as you add multiple subjects on a single page.

ARTS AND BIRDING
July 10-15, 2022
Session is full– Waiting list only
Hog Island Audubon Camp in Maine
Find creative inspiration on Maine’s stunningly beautiful rocky coast, surrounded by the sights, sounds, and rhythms of life on an island. Arts and Birding brings together people of all artistic levels who share an enthusiasm for birds and nature, and invites you to learn, explore and grow in a fun and supportive environment. We’ll explore the island’s spruce forest, tide pools, and striking vistas, take a boat trip to see puffins, and offer daily skill sessions in sketching/painting. Join me and fellow instructors Sherrie York, Barry VanDusen, and Sean Murtha for a great week.
