From the Forest to the Sea: Observing, Drawing and Writing in Nature on Fidalgo Island (Day 2)

All abilities are welcome as we combine observational drawing and writing in exploration of Fidalgo Island with local naturalist Denise Crowe and interdisciplinary artist Kate Clark.

This two-day workshop engages in fieldwork as an interdisciplinary creative practice.  What does field work mean if you are an artist, writer, or biologist? Each discipline draws upon keen powers of observation. We will learn to heighten our senses and ways of knowing through honing our skills in drawing, writing, and journaling.

We will experience the fundamentals of drawing (perspective, gesture, foreground/background, texture, scale) through a variety of medium and techniques useful to the beginner or advanced artist. Equipped with a toolbox of building block drawing techniques, and varied approaches to language we will explore and develop our own voice as observers in the field.


Advance registration is required for this workshop. More details and a materials fee will be given closer to the date. To sign-up please call 293-3725.
