Have you ever wanted to loosely capture what you see in a sketch while out on a hike or sitting in your own backyard?

In this class, the North Carolina Botanical Garden will become our classroom as we experience the healing benefits of sketching while out in nature. You can lower your stress levels and promote mental calmness as we sketch the landscape before us. This class is about loosely capturing the essence of the natural world, so don’t worry if you don’t have a lot of drawing experience as we won’t be focusing on all the little details. This class is for all skill levels.


Supplies are not included: Please bring: Graphite pencils: HB, 2B, 4B, sharpener, eraser, sketch book. Portable chair or camping stool. 



Remaining Seats: 1

Registration open through 4/5/2023 12:00 PM EST
