Learn how to create abstract drawings using natural forms as inspiration.  We will start with perennials, seedpods, trees, rocks, and water as our forms of study and learn how to transform these representational objects into abstract formal compositions that reflect your personal interests.   We will use graphite, charcoal, ink, and a variety of paper surfaces to create art.   A group drawing, a final large scale project, study of contemporary artists, and a photo assignment will be part of this enjoyable class surrounded by the beauty of the Wild Flower Center.
