All About Nature: Gnarly-Tree Forms
DATE:
TIME:
2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
SPEAKER:
Jamie Sweetman

The In Studio drop-in program presents a demonstration by artist Jamie Sweetman. She explores drawing concepts on form, structure and composition using a variety of mark-making techniques, as in parallel lines, cross-hatching and contour lines. Following the demonstration, visitors are welcome to draw directly from nature in the Sculpture Garden as well as from works in the collections. Join each week to see a different demonstration, and come away with drawings of your own.

Drawing directly from nature in the Sculpture Garden, learn how to represent the form and structure of trees. Sweetman uses a variety of drawing concepts, such as observation and the simplification of complex forms, in order to portray tree branches, trunks and leaves.
