Art In Nature - Sketch Hike

Outdoor Skills - Mixed Ages

We are meeting at High Plains Environmental Center with the hopes that fall migration will bring us some interesting waterfowl and we'll have great weather for our walk along part of Houts Resevior.. We will have a quick sketch lesson/advice for plantings often found along the water's edge with a little journaling prompt too. There are good samples for fall seeds and berries if you would rather have a small sample to record indoors. Bring a chair or stool you can carry - we'll have a good bit of drawing time. Binoculars optional but handy - lots of good views. First time participants will receive an orientation to the "art" of nature journaling. Returning participants are asked to check in with the group before finding a spot to sketch. There will be a "sketch cheats" or journaling techniques lesson at the beginning of each session that is optional for any participant. We'll all gather together during the last 10-15 minutes and share (optional) and cheer each other on. This group is designed to make beginners very comfortable and encouraged, and to make everyone more knowledgeable about the nature around them. Art in Nature programs are generally held on the third Friday of each month. Times and locations vary with changes in the seasons. If the weather looks bad we'll send out alternate plans via Offero email.
