Drawing and Painting Trees
Click here to register!  Windswept Tree 2017

For ages 12 to adult (children 12-14 must be accompanied by parent)
Monday night, Nov. 19 from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm in the VineArts Studio
Instructor: Jessie Nilo
$8 per student. Register by clicking above. 
Whether you delight in wild and crazy trees, or in neatly pattered, graceful trees, or something in between… we invite you to explore tree-making with us! Did you know there are basic tree shapes — such as a cone, a cylinder, or a sphere — and observing their natural tree shapes can help you create them? Learn a few ways to interpret trees both realistically and abstractly — including the edges, where the leaves meet the sky. Jessie loves drawing and painting trees, and she’ll demo and teach some pointers you will never forget. You might even consider entering your tree(s) for the January VineArts exhibit “A Grove of Trees.” Basic art supplies will be provided in this workshop, or feel free to bring your own.
