Before there was photography and technology, people relied on artists to show them nature and the outside world of distant places. It was how people would fall in love with the outdoors, how artists could capture not only the details, but the feeling of the landscape. In this workshop, we will be focusing on art solely from nature, from flora to fauna, from drawing or painting small leaves to taking our easels outside to create what’s all around us. Join in to fall in love with the nature of art, and the art of nature.


All studio workshops have a ratio of 1 staff member to 6 artists.
