Art Supplies Included in Price

Drawing hones our skills of observation and shifts how we see the physical world around us. It also changes the world inside of us by asking for complete attention to the moment. A series of fun drawing exercises in the garden will hone our observation skills and awaken our senses. We’ll incorporate some gentle movement and breathing exercises to help us stay relaxed, comfortable, and loose in our art practice.

Art supplies will be provided by TBG. Supplies: 2B drawing pencils, magic white eraser or kneaded eraser, drawing paper, pencil sharpener, clipboards so we can draw in the gardens

Class Capacity is 16 – Register Early!
