Join science illustrator Jacki Whisenant for a seasonally-themed sketchbook exploration designed to encourage the incorporation of art and science into a regular practice or just for relaxation and enjoyment. The eight-week class will explore techniques for field sketching while out on a spring hike, individual spot illustrations of natural objects like seeds, spring snow and new plant growth, as well as guided exercises for looking at color and texture in both settings. This is a way to make space in the day for art as an enjoyable practice to take with you far beyond the limits of this class. Registration for this course is limited to twelve participants.
