What does it mean for the artist to “really see?”

It means everything.

No matter if our ultimate goal is refined realism or loose and intuitive abstract expressionism, learning to see--and then to document what you see--is the foundation of it all.

Join Kateri Ewing in a two -hour Zoom workshop where we will explore the ways we can train our eyes and hands to work together by creating a nature journal to truthfully capture the world around us using graphite and ink.

Based on her bestselling book on drawing, Look Closer, Draw Better, this two-hour journey will open your eyes to the importance of seeing with an artist's eye and the simple ways you can create a daily habit to refine your skills.

A few pieces of drawing paper. A sharp Number 2 pencil or mechanical pencil. An eraser.  Pigma Micron Pen in Sepia or Black, size 005. An assortment of SMALL items from the natural world that you are able to hold in the palm of your hand--think acorn, walnut, seed pod, stone, twig, leaf, flower, seashell etc.
