1:00pm – 4:00pm

Repeats weekly until 01/31/2019.

Bartlett Arboretum, Stamford, 151 Brookdale Rd Stamford, CT 06903 Room: Silver Education Building

Through close and careful observation, learn to sketch natural objects such as seed pods, dried or live flowers, leaves, driftwood, etc. Starting with a series of exercises, we will practice techniques to simplify objects into basic shapes, see proper proportion, select important details, show texture and use shading to create the illusion of three dimensions. THIS IS A TWO-SESSION CLASS WITH LIMITED ENROLLMENT. Register early to be assured of a seat. Basic materials will be provided. Participants may also bring their own objects.
