Additional Info

We'll be sketching and painting from nature, using pencil, pen and watercolor.  Learn new skills or develop ones you already have.  Roxanne Steed will show you how to simplify what you see and teach basic drawing and quick intuitive watercolor techniques.  Enhance your creativity, observe nature, record the day and enjoy the meditative qualities of sketching and painting with watercolor. 

Any questions? contact me:

let's hear it for sketching in nature!

Meet inside, and we'll start there, and move outside if we're able.  But we have great views and wonderful things inside and outside at the Grassland Bird Conservation Center, 218 Day Road, Pomfret Center, CT 06259.
