Art Workshop: Making Art in the Landscape


Saturday, July 13, 2019, 1:00pm to 3:00pm


Hunnewell Building, Arnold Arboretum, 125 Arborway, Boston

Join Paul Olson, the Arnold Arboretum's exhibiting artist of Drawn to Paint, for a sketching workshop "en plein air" (outside, in the landscape). Olson, an instructor at Mass College of Art and RISD, will focus on teaching you to sketch trees from direct observation outdoors. He will encourage you to think about simplifying your design with just the essential shapes to make a good composition in light pencil. Then, you can use ink and water for an expressive tonal image. Bring pencils and sketchbooks; some supplies will be available.

Cost: $10 for members; $20 for nonmembers.
