‘Drawing Closer to Nature’ workshop set Sunday

By
April 26, 2011 |

Peter London will lead a workshop on “Drawing Closer to Nature” from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at Wyatt Deck on Old Davis Road in the UC Davis Arboretum. In case of rain, the workshop will meet in Environmental Horticulture 146.

Artists of all skill levels are invited to the drawing and painting  workshop. Employing simple, expressive art media in a safe and supportive setting with a few like-minded folks, participants will learn to create images that explore the connections between their inner selves and nature.

The instructor will guide participants to make art “the way nature makes the world; like a river that flows and flows until it arrives at its destination.” The only prerequisites for the workshop are an open mind, an adventurous spirit and a willingness to step outside. Materials will be provided.

London is the author of “No More Secondhand Art,” “Community-Based Art Education,” “Drawing Closer to Nature” and numerous articles. He is an active studio artist whose work is in many private and public collections. He has taught and lectured in art, art education and art therapy across North America and in Europe for the past 40 years.

An Arboretum volunteer and friend, London is donating all proceeds from this workshop to the Friends of the UCD Arboretum.

Free parking is available in Visitor Lot 5, at Old Davis Road and A Street. The fee for the workshop is $75 ($65 for members of Friends of the UCD Arboretum) and includes materials. Pre-registration is required; the class is limited to 20 participants. To register, visit http://registration.ucdavis.edu.

For more information, call (530) 752-4880.
