Let’s get together and explore the textures, markings, and colors of winter branches, dying leaves, acorns, dried berries and other last vestiges of the season along with any signs of emerging spring. Learn ways to use lots of color to create interesting browns and grays, and even greens, while enjoying the warmth of Heron Hall. We will cover blending, layering and burnishing techniques while incorporating the basics of botanical drawing. All levels welcome. Suitable for 12 year olds and up (children under 15 must be accompanied by a parent). Participants bring their own lunch and art supplies (a supply list will be provided). Hot drinks and light snacks will be provided throughout the day.
