Come join me around some of our naturalized area in Charlottesville to document our observations. This class will work on how to create and maintain a field sketchbook. We sketch outdoors in all weather(!) and meet once a month so that we can observe monthly changes in our environment. A great class to get to know your surroundings and start a journal. Dates: 3/17, 4/21, 5/19. Contact me for details and to hold a spot. ($180)
