Everything you ever wanted to know about trees and then some! We will study trees in a variety of mediums to capture the realism and beauty of this basic element of nature. From evergreens to dead limbs and of course bark!!!! Students will be able to structure work indicating trees in every plane of the piece in pencil, and pen & ink.
