It is different to draw from life than just using photos. Artist Julie Drew will teach you that what our eyes can see is so much more than a photo can capture. This weekly class at John Janzen Nature Centre will have you experiencing your Sunday mornings seeing and sketching the scenes around you while learning important drawing skills and techniques. Each week you will spend time enjoying nature with a sketchbook and drawing tools in hand. Spend your mornings among nature sketching en plein air (in the open air) and being indoors drawing artifacts from the collection. All supplies are included;
