About the event
This drawing workshop will capture the fruits of the fall harvest in still life. While exploring a variety of drawing media, learn the elements of drawing through the observation of local produce. Participants will arrange and draw a small still life and are encouraged to bring a harvest themed fall recipe to share with the community. The produce will be shared at the end of the workshop to take home as both inspiration and ingredients.
