Workshops & Classes
We enjoyed our fourth annual April workshops for adults and teens with Georgia Audubon Bird Fest:
Have you experienced remarkable encounters with birds you’d like to share with others? Award-winning naturalist author and illustrator, Christy Baker Knight, will lead us through the steps of capturing the essence of birding from the field journal entry to the line illustration and printed page. All ability levels are welcome!
Please bring basic writing and drawing materials of your choosing: a favorite pen, journal, laptop or tablet. The instructor will provide paper and pencils, as well as additional drawing supplies to share with the group.
Artful Nature Mapping for youth ages 8-12!
Christy has taught fine art & science workshops at Fernbank Museum of Natural History, Blue Heron Nature Preserve, Georgia Audubon, and privately in her home studio for over fifteen years. She takes a personal approach to teaching art and encourages her students to follow their own paths armed with the extensive, detailed knowledge and classical skills she provides in a nurturing manner.
Last year's workshop was a hybrid program of on-line group instruction and individual, place-based learning. Here is some lovely feedback from the event:
"Loved the lesson, the reading and inspirations, and I would love to sign up for your spring class." ~Anna Benifield
"That was fun, informative and motivating for me to get back to drawing. Your manner is just right for teaching: gentle, patient, and eager to help." ~Cynthia
"Thank you so much for the great program! It was helpful to have a class format in order to dedicate time to this topic. I also loved the drawing warm ups, and the inspiration from the young artists, as well as the reading. Delightful!" ~Susan Bond

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.
"Great class! I'm a beginner and you gave me confidence and made art fun. Thank you so much!" Artists leave class confident, refreshed and inspired.
