PRAIRIE LANDSCAPE with INK, CHALK, PASTEL & CHARCOAL

Big skies, wonderful sunsets, sensuous coulees & hills, roaming rivers, waving fields and gorgeous wild flowers are just some of the things I love about the prairies. You just can’t help but being influenced by all this wonderful landscape. In this class we will explore these elements and put our own spin on things by using a combination of materials. The student may use all or just one of these mediums to create some interesting landscapes. Composition is of the upmost importance as well as value and scale of our subject to help create the illusions of nature. This is a great time of year to do this class since all the colors of fall will be with us. Supply list at the Administration Desk.
