Nature is an endless source of inspiration and visual stimulation. See our land with new eyes as you hike and draw on City of Boulder Open Space Mountain Parks (OSMP) trails with a view of the famous Flatirons. Create a closer connection to place by responding to the natural phenomena you'll learn about and observe along the way. Explore a variety of drawing media and techniques and apply the basic visual elements of art: line, shape, space, light, color, and texture. Naturalist Suzanne Michot will guide participants along the trails, interpreting aspects of the natural world that surround us and give us inspiration. She'll discuss the flora, wildlife, geology and history of the area. Lisa Michot, artist and teacher, will provide drawing instruction. No drawing experience is necessary to take this class. Participants should bring their own supplies, such as a sketchbook or loose drawing paper, drawing pencils, color pencils, and something to sit on while drawing. Meet at the Chautauqua Dining Hall and wear sturdy shoes or boots and bring water and a snack. No pets, please.
