What we’ll do

We will take a walk through the gardens to collect flowers, foliage and seed pods to use in our drawings. Once back at the studio, I'll describe line, shapes, patterns, design and layout for creating elegant botanical line drawings. As a fun twist, if time allows, we'll also explore how to use the same tools to make whimsical folksy nature designs.

What else you should know

Land Alliance Folk School and Retreat Center is located on the farm of Dave and Anna Geyer. It shares space with Geyer's Oven, an outdoor wood fired pizza venue, and Anna's Cutting Garden, a u-pick flower garden. Parking and public restroom facilities are provided for all guests.

What I’ll provide

Tea and Water
Hot tea and fresh water are available, and guests may gather mint and herbs from the garden to make their own infusions.
Creative supplies
Botanicals, harvesting equipment, paper, pencils and pens.

What to bring

Please wear comfortable clothing and walking shoes.

Where you'll be

Our class will begin in the garden shed, overlooking the cutting garden. We will equip ourselves with baskets, vases and scissors before heading out to harvest what we want to draw. When gathering is done, we'll circle back to the studio for the drawing class itself.
