A day-long workshop that includes connecting with nature and our sketchbooks, looking for the leafy, flowery and organic patterns we find as we explore the surrounding woods and gardens in a quiet, contemplative manner.   The day will begin with gathering indoors and a brief introduction to pattern sketching as it applies to nature.   We'll incorporate a variety of techniques, from Zentangle pattern drawing to pen and watercolor sketching and simple pencil sketching.  Then we'll go outdoors on our walks, in small groups and take photos, collect samples if appropriate, and look at the myriad of repetitive patterns found in nature.  We'll have time for sketching what we see, and also looking closer for hidden patterns.   

After lunch, we'll gather and look closer at our photos and finds as a group, share any surprises and end with some quiet art journaling time.

10:30-4:30pm Fee: $75 with lunch, $65 without.  Pre-registration is required.

How many are your works, O Lord! In wisdom you made them all, the earth is full of your creatures. There is the sea, vast and spacious teeming with creatures beyond number- living things both large and small.
- Psalm 104:24-25
