About the event

Trees are like people- lots of personality, and they seem complicated! In this class we will look at the personality of trees; crooked and gnarly, old or young, rough or willowy, and then explore how to illustrate them. Using various drawing and painting materials, learn more about shape, textures, mark making and seeing color. Learn to really see the wonderful personality of a tree!
