Together we will explore the benefits of observational sketching in this beautiful garden setting. Several painting stations and standing easels are situated throughout the garden.

 

  • Relax by the lily pad fish pond

Work as much or as little as you like!  This is YOUR time!  There is much to see and do but there is no pressure here.  Observation and reflection can be just as fruitful as working hard.  

 

  • Enjoy a variety of demonstrations

Tonja will demonstrate many helpful techniques for sketching in a sketchbook, painting and drawing on location as well as working from photos and in the studio.  The intimate setting will also provide opportunities for individual guidance.

 

  • Practice techniques during studio time

The studio is open until 10:00 each evening.  Take advantage of the space to work as late as you like.  Many unique tools and resources are available for your use.
