Adult Natural Science Illustration Workshop
Saturday, January 27, 1-4 PM
How many stories do trees have to tell? As many as there are ways to render these shading giants on paper. Join us for a winter afternoon of creativity and reflection as we listen deep down at root level andway up in lofty perches. Using literature as inspiration, we’ll learn drawing techniques such as modeling, contour and value building to capture those moments when trees speak to us, and then find our own visual voices.
Instructor: Christy Knight
Supplies: pencil, with options for colored pencil and charcoal techniques.
Suggested Materials to bring to class:
6B, 2B and HB pencils, kneaded eraser, hot pressed paper or Bristol, a drafting board and clips to affix the paper to the board

Engage the senses as you take a sojourn in the field and studio. The foundation of all our classes, workshops and camps began with this professional, private instruction which has been developed and taught by Christy Knight over the last twenty years. Christy reveals the tools and techniques garnered from a lifetime of experience as an illustrator and artist, building technical skills and championing your unique voice.
Private lessons are professionally tailored to the specific needs of the Artist. Lesson time may include drawing exercises, painting techniques, botanical studies, portraiture, color theory, art history, all of the above or other. The lesson format establishes a routine much like one would for sports where there are warm up exercises, practice, new skills learned and a cool down routine.
Artists leave class confident, refreshed and inspired.
