Travel Sketching with Watercolor/Pencil

Instructor: Ellen Miffitt

Cost:  $25

Ages:  16 and up

Do you  wonder why we rarely relive our travels through photos? Perhaps because taking a photo requires so little investment of one’s attention. Artistic journaling slows your pace, as you ob­serve a scene for at least as long as it takes to sketch it. Journaling is solely for pleasure - it doesn’t require that you be an accomplished artist. Regardless of skill level, you’ll be amazed how quickly you’re drawing and watercolor skills improve - within hours! We’ll sketch around Olympia’s Percival Landing and by the end of the workshop; you’ll be dedicated to journaling! Supply list available online or at registration.
