Botanical Drawing workshop 2017


We’ll meet at Bascom Lodge, atop beautiful Mt Greylock….to begin the drawing process. Develop the skill to observe as we explore the scenic surroundings as we “land” on an easy walk around the mountain.

We’ll return to Bascom Lodge to start drawing, beginning with some basic drawing techniques involving relationship, simple exercises and the use of a variety of materials.

We will break for a 30 minute lunch around noon.

Lunch is available at the Bascom Lodge dining room (see www.bascomlodge.net for more information) or you are welcome to bring you own.

After lunch we will continue to draw. A discussion and presentation will explore the possibilities of transferring you own artwork through collage, to multiple surfaces..including art work, decorative flower pots, boxes, light switches and jewelry.
