What you'll do

You'll begin in the Nolley Art House Great Room where we'll circle-up for a demo on the classic art media of charcoal and soft pastels. Following the demo, you will be given a map of the surrounding landscape that will lead you to your own, private-set-up easel; set with all provisions for an artist's escape. You will draw over the course of two hours and I will offer artistic direction, and drawing tips. To complete the outdoor experience -galoshes on foot- I will lead you to see a unique aspect of the property, a natural spring.

Learn more about Jesse

Jesse

As a child, I was deeply moved by the healing powers of art and nature. These two elements offered me an outlet for my emotions, the inspiration to get creative, and ultimately, these two impactful experiences gave me the tools to live a meditative and thankful life. Now, 20 years an artist, I want to share this experience, Drawing in Rural Appalachia, with others because I believe they also will enjoy drawing while nestled outdoors.

What's included

Equipment
Nolley Art House will supply easels, charcoal, soft pastels, newsprint paper, pastel paper, kneaded erasers, blender sticks,…

Where you'll be

We will conduct our art experience at the beautiful Nolley Art House, a home-turned-arts-venue. This house was built in the '60s, with handmade brick from a previous homestead. Nolley Art House is uniquely welcoming and is surrounded by 8 acres of rural Appalachia.
