Workshops, workshops, workshops

It's that time of year again! Summer workshop season. It looks as though I'll be wandering from here to Maine and New Mexico in August! Fun! (I think.) Just in case you're looking for something to do:

In JULY:

• Crested Butte Wildflower Festival
Crested Butte, Colorado
July 8-11, 2008
Visit the Wildflower Festival website for registration and details.

What's on at the Festival:

Field Sketching Basics
Even if you think you can’t draw a straight line, you can keep visual field notes. In this workshop we will cover several basic drawing and observation skills and techniques, including contour, memory, and gesture drawing.
Two opportunities:
Tuesday, July 8 or Thursday July 10 9:00am-12:00 noon

The Handmade Journal
Keeping a journal can be that much more special if you record your observations in a book you’ve made yourself! We will use artist-quality supplies to build a soft leather-bound book.
Wednesday, July 9 9:00am-3:00pm

Field Sketching II: Let’s go draw!
Have you been wanting to keep a field journal, but don’t know where to start? Are you ready to add to your repertoire with color? Spend the day in the field and classroom with us and fill some sketchbook pages through guided exercises and experiments.
Friday, July 11 9:00am-4:00pm

In AUGUST:

• GARNA Summer Seminars
Salida, Colorado

Field Sketching and Book Making
Time spent aboserving nature is ALWAYS worthwhile, and to sketch while you're at it is just plain fun! Grab a sketchbook and a pencil and join us as we learn to record the world around us. We'll also spend a little time looking at different sketchbook and journal forms, including some easy ways to bind your own books.
