Get out of the studio and into nature with this outdoor drawing class.There is nothing like drawing from life and summer gives us a perfect opportunity to explore the landscape pictorially. Students will hone their drawing skills using pencil and mixed media. Composition, perspective, texture and form will be our focus.
