Drawing from observation is an essential skill to learn as an artist. This class will use nature as our guide as we learn to draw native wildflowers, insects, seascapes, clouds, and more, from an assortment of real life observation, provided images, and step by step instructions. This is a studio class, so students will be able to choose which medium they want to use for each project. No two projects are ever alike!
Supply List (I will supply brushes, watercolor pencils, regular colored pencils, chalk, and oil pastels for general classroom use. All other materials listed below are for YOU to purchase for your student.)

**All Life Adventures activities & classes require an annual family registration. Once you’ve registered your family, to enroll in a class, pay the $10 enrollment fee and in the notes tell us the name and age/grade of the child you are enrolling. 2nd semester sign-ups will need to re-enroll their child through this process. The teacher will contact you within one week of enrollment to give class details and be available for questions.
