Nature Drawing with Watercolor with Yosemite Conservancy

Capture your surroundings in pen and pencil during a workshop with a skilled scientific illustrator. 

Join artist and educator Sean Edgerton for a fun, adventurous class focused on the basic elements of drawing and painting outdoors in Yosemite Valley. 

Throughout the class, Edgerton will help you discover and observe details in the landscape, and will offer guidance as you use pencils and pens to record your surroundings and watercolor to add depth and perspective. 

As you take a fresh look at everything from tiny flowers and insects, to tall trees and waterfalls, you’ll begin to see the beauty in creatures and features you might otherwise overlook. You might study the delicate veins of a pale green leaf, outline the undulations of snowmelt flowing in the Merced River, or sketch a granite skyline — or anything else that catches your eye! Whatever you choose to focus on, you’ll draw on freshly learned tips and techniques to capture the shapes, textures and sensations of spring in Yosemite.
