As the days grow longer and warmer, trees blossom and bud and Parisian parks become a hub of activity--join us to explore the full flowering of nature in Paris with its many gardens and tree-lined river banks.

Additionally,  draw inspiration from travel and springtime excursions into the countryside by combining your snapshots and postcards while combining drawing and graphic design. Instruction in the design principals of repetition, rhythm, movement and space will train your eye, enhance your knowledge of composition and suggest endlessly creative ways to express the beauty of nature at this colorful and vivid time of year.

This session continues the Carnet de Voyage, adding an introduction to selecting and using a variety of paper, pencils, charcoals, pens, markers, inks, and, yes, even erasers!  Guidance will be provided to choose the appropriate supplies even if the names are in French.
