Event description

Description

Join experienced teaching artists, Scott Renk (Mary Phillips High School) and Angela Lombardi Zappala (Education and Outreach Coordinator at Artspace), for a lively morning of drawing outside.

We will be walking around the beautiful grounds of Dorothea Dix, amongst gigantic trees, taking in panoramic views of Downtown Raleigh, observing architecture and all aspects of nature in autumn. Your observational skills will be sharpened and you will learn about choosing an interesting location to sketch, how to narrow down many elements to create a strong composition, as well as play with textures, lines and colors! Fun for the whole family.

Paper, pencils and sketch boards will be provided, but please bring your own if you have them. You may also want to bring a camp chair or blanket if you aren't comfortable sitting on the ground.

A minimum of five participants must be registered or the class will be canceled.

Please Note: There are no bathrooms in the park and no drinkable water, so please plan to bring a water bottle and come prepared to only have portajohns available. Walking in grass and up and down hills may be necessary.
