Get away from the bustle of everyday life and spend your day capturing the shape, form and beauty of the Northwest garden!

Follow Marjorie as she teaches, demos and shares her step-by-step approach to sketching in the garden to create a flora-centric "narrative" field journal.


Working plein air, learn how gesture lines follow the natural flow of botanical subjects and evolve into expressive floral shapes. Use a simple color palette to practice the "color to value" method and develop a working comfort as you add watercolor washes to your graphite sketches.

The afternoon focuses on the composed page. Discover the natural way field "notes" and curious botanical details weave their way onto the page.


This all-levels class is the artistic gateway to capturing your own garden portrait!
