Weekly Sketching Series
Add to your calendar
Date: July 28, 9:30 am
Location: The Art Studio
Details: Explore Crested Butte with paper, pen, and watercolors. Instead of a camera to record impressions of a place, slow down and examine the world around you. These weekly classes will start you off on a journey of keeping a small sketchbook to record your impressions of new and/or familiar environments. In a relaxed and encouraging atmosphere, learn the basics of sketching and watercolor as we walk around town, recording vignettes of Crested Butte, and then returning to The Art Studio to add color to your work. Taking the time to create a visual memory will give you a richer sense of place than the snapping of a photo ever could. All supplies included. Instructor: Peggy Stenmark. Choose from 6 Thursdays or sign up for the series.

TIME
9:30 AM-12:30 PM

COST
$35 per class or $200 for all 6 weeks
