The artist sketchbook is a powerful tool for learning and growing artistically. Free from the expectation of “creating a masterpiece,” working in a sketchbook will give you the freedom to experiment, practice, and record your experiences. We’ll focus on sketching on location with pencil, pen, and watercolor and explore ways to capture subjects including nature, travel, and common everyday subjects. Each session will include demonstrations and exercises, with sharing and feedback in a supportive group. Optional assignments will be geared to help you practice techniques and develop a weekly sketching habit. Suited for beginners to advanced artists, though some experience with drawing is helpful. Class will be taught with Zoom and limited to 12 participants.

Hog Island Audubon Camp in Maine
Immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, and rhythms of life on an island on Maine’s stunningly beautiful rocky coast! You’ll find plenty of creative inspiration in the company of others who share an enthusiasm for birds and nature. 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. Beginner to advanced participants welcome. We work in a fun, positive, collaborative atmosphere.
