Join Master Naturalist, Susan Brookreson for a Nature Sketching Workshop at CraftWorks at Cool Spring. 

Susan will focus on teaching drawing techniques that quickly capture as much information about the subject being observed in nature as possible; information not always present or obvious in a photo. This type of drawing is useful in the field when you want to come back with enough information to correctly identify the fern, flower, insect, etc. you have observed.  Most importantly, this type of drawing can help you learn to see in more detail the beauty and complexity in nature.  

This workshop is aimed at those with little or no drawing experience although all levels are welcome.
Please bring along pencils and a small portable sketchpad.

Weather permitting, Susan will do some drawing outside so please dress accordingly.

Registration for this workshop is required. Please contact Krista Hawley at
or 304-876-8471 with any questions you may have.

CraftWorks is located at 1469 Lloyd Road, 5 miles south of Charles Town. For directions, go to their website at
