Getting Started with Nature Drawing with Barry Van Dusen

More About Getting Started with Nature Drawing with Barry Van Dusen

In this one-day workshop, we’ll explore drawing methods and techniques. You’ll learn how to enhance your observation and drawing abilities – starting with warm-up exercises to develop hand-eye coordination, and moving on to valuable contour drawing techniques and memory drawing skills.

You’ll do “follow-along” drawing exercises, and learn lots of practical tips for improving your skills. Barry will describe his field drawing methods and materials and show how the regular use of a field sketchbook can lead to a deeper understanding of the natural world while at the same time developing your artistic and expressive potential.

Artist of all skill levels are welcome. Class size is limited so early registration is recommended. Pre-registration required. Online registration available.



Barry W. Van Dusen is an internationally recognized wildlife artist. His articles and paintings have been featured in Bird Watcher's Digest, Birding, and Yankee magazines and he has illustrated a variety of natural history books and pocket guides in association with the Massachusetts Audubon Society.
