Join Will for Drawing, Sketching and Painting Nature!
PVAS Hosts: Will Janssen
Registration is required and limited to 20 participants.
Duration: 3 hours
Experience Needed: None! People of all skill levels are welcome and together we will begin developing or improving upon our skills.
Materials to Bring: A pencil, a sketch book, and a ballpoint pen. Also, feel free to bring any other media you would like to use for the sketching in your sketch book.
Description: This activity is a hands-on introduction to Drawing and Sketching Nature. This is not an activity in learning Nature Journaling, but the Drawing and Sketching skills developed can be used for a Nature Journal. While there are several definitions, Drawing is typically more detailed and possibly larger than Sketching. The plan is to use both approaches.
Can you draw and sketch? Yes, if you have the desire and interest as drawing and sketching is a learned skill. No question that some people will develop skills faster than others, but everyone can do it and have fun. You will make mistakes, we all do, which is how you learn and grow your skills.
This second meeting (you do not have to have attended any previous sessions!) will introduce the use of pen and ink. This session will start with introductions, a discussion of the various types of inks and how to use them. It will include methods to create the
perception of volume in a drawing. Then for the rest of the session participants will be pick a nature object or two and sketch it, outside if the weather is permitting. Then at the end there will be a discussion on what participants learned and thought about the process.
