Art inspired by Nature
In this course, students look at the natural world around them as inspiration for creating their art. Through looking at the work of artists including Georgia O'Keeffe, Frank Lloyd Wright, Sumi brush painters and Native American artists, students determine the influences of nature on the art of various times and places. Excursions around the campus and neighboring areas provide opportunities for students to select and directly study different natural forms for use in creating their own compositions. This course spans a wide range of art processes, media, and dimensions (2D and 3D) such as drawing from observing nature, sculpting nature-inspired forms, using natural materials for mixed media collage, recording changes in nature, and much more.

Drawing and Painting Workshop
For the young artist who loves to draw, this fast-paced course offers a little bit of everything. Students create drawings from memory, observation, imagination, and in response to the art of master artists. Different approaches, tools, materials and techniques are presented and explored using a diverse range of media, from pen and pencil to color explorations in pastel and paint. With the introduction of each new medium and technique, students create studies and sketches as preparation for several larger, refined pieces for the final art show. Emphasis is on exposure to a variety of traditional and non-traditional drawing media and surfaces, with hands-on process work and experimentation at the heart of learning each new drawing technique or medium.
