With assorted handheld stones and agate slabs as our guides, this workshop combines close sensory observation of geological specimens with the act of mindful drawing. Each drawing we do presents a different way of seeing and marking, working across specimens and techniques. Participants receive a kit of diverse geological specimens and all art materials for the session, including a 66-color Daniel Smith watercolor sampler with mineral pigments, marking tools, ample watercolor paper, brushes, and presentation materials for matting finished drawings.
Whether you’re an experienced artist or are just starting out, this is an opportunity to create intimate artworks that reflect the rich natural environment that surrounds us. No previous drawing experience is required, just a curiosity about exploring natural geological forms and diverse materials through close observation and engaged markmaking.
