Yellowstone Watercolor Expedition: July Session
July 12 - 15
We all grab our phones to capture scenes during our travels, but have you ever wanted to chronicle your visual experiences outdoors in a more artistic and meaningful way? This workshop will teach artists of all skill levels a variety of sketching and painting techniques for creating your own watercolor journal, filled with your observations of the Yellowstone landscape. You’re invited to continue in the same artistic tradition of recording and preserving your unique Yellowstone experience, just as artist Thomas Moran did during Ferdinand Hayden’s 1871 expedition. Each month of summer will provide new and interesting views, and for each, you’ll learn to paint forests, flora, streams, geysers and more, along with several tips on rendering wildlife as well. With the completion of this workshop, you’ll be empowered to paint your outdoor experiences, connect more deeply with nature, and create treasured journals that hold your images with more passion than your phone will ever do.
