Register for this Workshop

This workshop is a retreat to observe, draw, and write along the trails of Provincetown using prompts of Henry David Thoreau and others. Drawing methods used will be suitable for beginners to advanced, including pen, pencil, ink and brush, basic watercolor, combining word and image on sketchbook pages. The sketchbook is a way of traveling into new landscapes, seeing them fresh with your own eyes, as the observer in a particular moment in geography and time. The result is an individual experience translated into your own particular sensory map. We’ll carpool or walk and introduce a new site each day to include dunes, forest, and beach.
