By Sue Fierston

NOTE: Registration will close for this program at 3 p.m. ET on Friday, January 21, 2022.

When inspiration moves you, create a personal and powerful record of experiences by drawing and painting moments from your life. Join artist and writer Sue Fierston for this class on the essentials of starting a sketchbook habit.  Practice “close looking” exercises as you fill your sketchbook with meditative contour drawings, watercolor sketches of the natural world, and quick but evocative images from travels, past or present. Some previous watercolor or drawing experience is recommended.

This class will be recorded. Please see our FAQ for recording terms and conditions.
