    Drawing outdoors is a wonderful way to relax in the natural world, and this class, in the beautiful gardens of the Morris Arboretum, provides a fun and nurturing environment in which to draw some of the most beautiful trees in Philadelphia. We will explore several simple concepts designed to facilitate drawing for beginners and accomplished artists alike, concentrating on the movement and growth of trees. Henry Martin is a Philadelphia-based plein-air painter who uses the open air as his studio. He describes his style of painting as "atmospheric naturalism." Please be ready to draw on the first day by purchasing in advance a sketch or drawing pad no smaller than 11 x 14 inches. Please bring sharpened 2b and 4b pencils and a small pencil sharpener. The approximate cost for materials is $20

    Instructor: Henry Martin - Artist
