Drawing from Nature


Instructor: Dawn Stafford, $150

In this multi-level workshop we will explore the rich botanical world of Ox-Bow’s 115 acre campus. Together we will practice mixing the mediums of charcoal, conte crayons, and ink on paper as vehicles for what inspiration and sense of connectedness we may find.  Special emphasis will be given to the individual and expressive personality of line-making, the relationship between figure and ground, how drawing intersects painting with color, and where observation intersects interpretation.  Prior experience is helpful, but not necessary.
