Through instruction, demonstrations and free exploration time, you will be able to capture the beauty around you. During the morning in the classroom, participants will learn (or sharpen) some basic sketching and observation skills and then head out to practice these skills in a specific location in the Park. We will learn different approaches that will include simple sketches with pencil, ink, colored pencils and watercolor. Beginners are welcome and encouraged!

We will meet at the Estes Park Visitor Center and travel together to various sites in Rocky Mountain National Park in Conservancy vehicles. Registration includes all required fees and permits for Rocky Mountain National Park.
