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 Autumn Sketchbook course will explore techniques for field sketching while out on a fall hike, looking at natural objects like seeds, changing leaves, and autumn creatures, as well as guided exercises for looking at color and texture in both settings.
