(AC Spring 2023) Scientific Illustration: Spring Sketchbook with Jacki Whisenant

 Registration is closed for this event

Join instructor Jacki Whisenant for a seasonally-themed sketchbook exploration designed to encourage the incorporation of art into a regular practice for relaxation and artistic exploration. The class will explore techniques for field sketching while out on a spring hike, individual spot illustrations of natural objects like seeds, spring snow and new plant growth, as well as guided exercises for looking at color and texture in both settings. This is a way to make space in the day for art as an enjoyable practice to take with you far beyond the limits of this class.

A slight change from past spring sessions: We will start the first few weeks focusing on black-and-white media, concentrating on graphite and ink. The second four weeks of the class will focus more specifically on watercolor techniques to bring color into your work as the spring season becomes more colorful as well.
