Drawing the Desert Garden

Garden’s are a refuge for the heart and mind consisting not only of plants, but of tiled benches, sculptures and rock arrangements. In this class presented by The Drawing Studio’s Saraiya Kanning, we’ll use bold India ink to create drawings that feature scenes or vignettes and may include pottery, fountains, and other items located throughout the garden.
