VisArts is offering this popular online series with a new twist: the last class will be working from life using trees in the VisArts neighborhood. The first five classes will be online and the last class will be held at VisArts sketching outside..

Trees have been popular subjects for art throughout time, due to their expressiveness and variety in color, shape, and size and how they adapt to the landscape they are in. Students will set up a drawing station outside a window and at the start of class will do a quick pencil sketch of a tree or choose to sketch from a photo. The rest of the class will consist first of demos ,and then you will do your own interpretation of the work of the artist chosen for that week.

Recommended Materials:

  • Sturdy white drawing paper 11 “x 14”, 5 sheets
  • Drawing pencils (4B or 6B recommended)
  • Eraser
  • Black watercolor or india ink for washes
  • Water cup
  • Flat watercolor brush (size 8 recommended)
  • 1 sheet watercolor paper 11” x  14” one sheet
  • Colored pencils
