Drawing “en plein air” with Christine Prescott

Students will learn to draw what they see, using an outdoor setting to draw quick sketches/studies. We will cover drawing techniques to help create realistic style in our field drawings. Students will also explore composition techniques, shading, and values to add artistic interest to their work. These drawings will provide an opportunity to develop core competencies in communication and critical thinking.
