An artistic adventure awaits you in this painting and guided easy-hiking experience. Combine the ease of fine point marker with loose, flowing watercolour washes to create quick and exciting sketches of the sights along the way. This combination of mediums is the perfect way to begin a visual journal. Sharon has taught this quick sketching method to hundreds of artists and non-artists alike with great success.

Class will run from 9am to 3pm each day. A box lunch is included. In the event of inclement weather the workshop will be moved indoors and photo references will be used.

Ability Level: All levels welcome

Required: Participants must be able to walk up to 5 km/day on gentle outdoor hikes while carrying lightweight painting gear in a backpack.
