How to Draw A Forest (San Francisco)

February 12, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Into the Woods! Just as you do not draw a tree by drawing a lot of leaves, you do not draw a forest by drawing a lot of trees. Learn how to suggest the feeling of a distant forest, including the skyline pattern, edge and texture. We will demonstrate techniques using pencil and watercolor. In addition, learn how to draw the view from within the forest as you look out through the trunks and get a feeling of the play of light and shadow, and the tangle of branches. A few simple principles and methods will help you draw what you see without getting lost in the trees or taking hours to complete so you can still make it to grandmother’s house and have time to sketch along the way.

Government Shutdown Considerations: If our government is still not in operation, we will not be able to use the Crissy Field Center. However, if it is not raining, we will meet outside of the center and have class the old fashioned way. Bring your sketching materials, paper and a stamped envelope to write a letter to the representative of your choice letting em know how we feel. Class canceled if the shutdown is still in effect and it is raining (write a letter anyway).

All ages and experience levels are welcome.  No registration necessary,

$20 suggested donation.
