9:30 - 11:30 am
Meeting in NE Santa Fe off of Bishop's Lodge Road
Building on the Drawing as Meditation sessions, this class will focus on landscape and the use of colored pencil. We will explore what fascinates us in our environment, be it a cluster of piñon, aspen, cacti, or a distant vista. We will play with different approaches to landscape, how to describe its essence through quality of line, contrast of light and shadow, texture, and composition. When it is not windy, we will spend time outside to draw en plein air. Emphasis will continue to be on sharpening the eye to see, and how the hand with pencil can articulate our connection with what we observe.
