Let’s get outside and draw the wondrous world around us in this introduction to plein air drawing workshop. After a brief lecture on setups, composition, and perspective, we will dive into exploring the outdoor space in search of our compositions. You will complete multiple sketchbook drawings using a variety of drawing media. Graphite pencils and pens will be our main focus, but any additional materials are welcome including colored pencils, or charcoal or pastels. We will be meeting off-campus at a location close to the City of Lancaster. Exact location will be sent after registration. If there are questions about the location, please email 

This course must meet minimum enrollment by May 25 in order to run. Register today!
