Nov. 13 + 17: Nature Sketching Presentation / Field Trip

Let’s talk gear!

I’m the November speaker for the Austin Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas, where I’ll be sharing the benefits and how-tos of nature sketching, then we’ll make a mini sketchbook and do some drawing!

What you will learn:

  • How to create a small sketch book using simple materials.
  • How to do a simple drawing of a flower.
  • How to be still and pay closer attention to the natural world around you.
  • How drawing helps you develop more understanding of plant anatomy and ecology.
  • How drawing helps you develop a greater awareness and appreciation for native landscapes.

What to bring to the presentation:

  • A #2 pencil and a few pieces of blank paper (sheets from your home printer will do just fine).
  • An open mind!

We’ll have a followup trip to sketch together out in the field.

Presentation: November 13, 7:00 pm

Field Trip: November 17, 9:00 am, Mayfield Park
