Join local artist Susan Brookreson for a Nature Sketching Workshop at Cool Spring Preserve. 

Susan will focus on teaching drawing techniques that quickly capture as much information about the subject being observed in nature as possible; information not always present or obvious in a photo. This type of drawing is useful in the field when you want to come back with enough information to correctly identify the fern, flower, insect, etc. you have observed.  Most importantly, this type of drawing can help you learn to see in more detail the beauty and complexity in nature.  

This workshop is aimed at those with little or no drawing experience although all levels are welcome.
Please bring along pencils and a small portable sketchpad.

Weather permitting, the class will do some drawing outside so please dress accordingly, bring along drinking water and insect repellent. 

Registration for this workshop is required. 

Please contact Krista Hawley at
or 703-303-1026 with any questions you may have.
