We will go for a guided walkabout tour of the area to capture the landscape in a sketchbook format.
This is for 1 or up to 7 skilled or unskilled artists. A small blank book with be provided with the use of various mediums.
Sketching is a great way to get creative. There is no pressure to produce a final masterpiece, but rather to investigate, and get ideas for the next masterpiece. One can fumble with new techniques, test new mediums and storytelling in an open ended way in a sketch book.
There will be focused observations and a moment to take time in nature (and still be close to a bathroom!).
Teacher Nina is open to negotiating different times and for special groups, including a trip to the vineyards to sketch. Please ask.
Two hours in duration $60.00 for one person or two friends for $50.00 each person.
About the teacher and the location.
Nina Karavasiles, typically a public artist, will be teaching this class. She has also been a college adjunct professor for many years. She is totally enjoying the openness of teaching these kinds of classes, outside and outside of a curriculum.
Location Warner Springs, California San Diego county- top, middle, between Temecula and Julian. Chaparral, 3000 elevation. 6 acres with sitting spots. Indoors- metal building. It's not a cottage. It's not cute. It's a working artist's studio on loan to you for a few hours. Utilitarian; toilet and great library, chairs are miss matched and comfy. Views of the Palomar Mountain Range and Beauty Mt. Close to mom and pop sized vineyards (not to diminish their amazing wine, but to describe their size and casual feel). Snakes, spiders and mountain lions are here.
