Outdoor Educational Class "Drawing Mushrooms and Flowers 101"


Sat, Nov 23

9:00 AM


Eastern Shore


The southern forest is full of magic! Even the most easily-overlooked plants, such as mushrooms and wildflowers scattered along the forest floor, can be both interesting and beautiful and make great subjects for a nature journal. Come develop your drawing skills using these botanical jewels in a short, interactive, workshop on November 23, 2019. This class will help you develop your observation and drawing skills in a relaxed setting and will inspire you to venture into the forest where your own new discoveries await!
