Summer Fun at the Top

Lots more pencils, lots more books, sketchbooks that is, for drawing all of the wonders of summer.  Weather permitting we’ll start off every smorgasbord class with a bit of Backyard Naturalist, my brand of nature journaling. To slow down, observe, and record the world around us from our own point of view is what we artists really do, and listening to and drawing from nature is one of the best ways to do that.

See the state of the summer schedule below. Notice there are a few with only two signed up. We’ll need 3 to make a session happen, so if you know of anyone who might be interested in joining any of these sessions, please share this.
Weeks that have no one signed up can be modified to serve your wishes and schedule. Things usually fall into place nicely.  Scroll down for the kids’ latest artwork.
