Lake Merritt Fieldtrip: Drawing Trees
January 31, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Join us at Oakland’s Lake Merritt to practice drawing trees both from a distance and in detailed close ups. Drawings done in pen and ink will be used by Oakland’s Department of Parks and Recreation to make an educational brochure about the trees of Lake Merritt. You can contribute to this project! Not interested in drawing trees? Come for the waterfowl and the famous potluck lunch.
Bring a potluck treat to share (it can stay in your car while you sketch), a spoon and bowl, your favorite sketching supplies, and a portable stool if you have one.
Meet at the Rotary Nature Center at Lake Merritt.
This program is free with a $20 suggested donation. No experience necessary. All ages welcome. In case of rain, check this website the morning of the trip. We will probably relocate to the Oakland Museaum.
