INSPIRED BY NATURE: Mixed Media Expressive Mark Making w/ Court McCrakcen

  • This event has passed.

July 22, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm


Activate your senses! Notice where your eyes float across the edges of natural objects. Allow your hand to dance across the surface of paper with paint, ink, charcoal, and more!

This class is for anyone who says “I can’t draw a stick figure”… or those wanting to learn a more gentle, intuitive way of drawing.

Inspired by Nature allows you enjoy the experience of drawing in a new way — by creating a dance with your eyes, the flowing subject matter of nature, and the art materials. During the workshop you’ll explore a wide variety of materials, learn expressive drawing and painting techniques, and begin to combine fresh observations onto a mixed media surface. We will explore materials like vine charcoal, that naturally invite a fluid, gentle approach to drawing that supports your ease of movement across the page.

You’ll leave with a greater connection to your unique hand and expressive lines and a deeper engagement with drawing as an explorative and abstract practice. We’ll have some natural objects to draw, but also bring some that inspire you! Come Play!
