We will create sketchbook pages to document what is happening in our gardens each month. Choosing one or two plants or trees to follow through the seasons from the gray days of winter to the first spring buds, we will focus on color mixing, try our different colored pencil techniques, and learn a little botany as we go along. Learn to look closely at the changes in plant life in your own back yard.
Supply list and monthly handouts will be provided. All levels welcome.
