Drawing on the Run with Karen LeGault

Workshop | May 20 | 10 a.m.-3 p.m. |  UC Botanical Garden

 Botanical Garden

Do you ever want to stop and sketch your views while you are traveling or visiting special places? The challenge is to capture the essence of what we see in a short time, whether its 30 seconds, 30 minutes, or one hour.

Using pen and ink, pencil and colored pencil, we will go through some exercises to learn a few simple but effective techniques to record our experiences so we can enjoy them, or even work from them, later. The act of drawing and recording our interest on paper deepens our ability to experience and "see" a place in more detail. It allows us to slow down and appreciate and absorb.

You might even be surprised by what you can draw!

Materials needed are:
• A small sketchbook, 11 x 14 at the largest
• A pen with indelible waterproof ink. The tip should roll smoothly on paper without any resistance.
• Colored Pencils - at least a couple of each of the following - reds, yellows, greens, blues, browns, white

Instructor, Karen LeGault is joyfully committed to visual poetry, light, transformation and healing, through paintings that bring energy and serenity into the world. She has been teaching art for the last twenty years, sharing a lifetime of exploration in drawing and painting arts with adults and children of all ages. Observant and intuitive, she meets you where you are at and encourages you to evolve beyond a momentary limitation. She recognizes that you will bring your own sensibility to the techniques she presents while drawing out your inner artist.
