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. Instruction will be tailored to children’s experience and interests.
