Explore the nature and architecture of the homestead through drawing, nature journals and watercolor painting. Make your own handmade books for sketching and finished work. Drawing will include direct observation of nature, drawing games and techniques to improve your skills. Explore the natural surroundings of the gardens, trail and stream while nature journaling. Learn new painting methods and practice watercolors at the buildings, forests and pond. Students will also have time to complete finished drawings and paintings.
