Field Sketching: Don’t Be Afraid To Go In To The Woods
How does the land shape people….and how do people shape the land? This the first session of “The Artist As Naturalist,” a three-part series which focuses on art as a personal experience with nature, and how one’s own individual experiences influence artistic creation. “Field Sketching: Don’t Be Afraid To Go In To The Woods” is designed for those who are just beginning with drawing or those who are looking for a refresher, instructional emphasis will be on analysis of basic shapes and forms, value, and capturing the essence of the subject. Guided practice with drawing media and observational techniques will precede the onsite work. Artists will have opportunities to explore subjects of choice in two different settings within the trail system at Rogers Center. The role of the artist sketchbook from a historic standpoint in aiding the works of artist such as Winslow Homer and the Hudson River School of Art members will be introduced.
