These recent photos of a Hampshire College drawing class in our courtyard reminds me that fall is a wonderful time of year to draw or paint outside with your family.
Setup a mini outdoor studio with pencils, pens, or markers on a tablecloth in the grass, on a picnic table, or just a quiet spot off the trail.
Practice drawing what you see around you. Look for interesting plants, animals, or buildings to focus on.
Collect your observations in a home made journal or attach sheets of drawing paper to a clipboard.
Next time you take a walk in the woods or a trip to the park, try bringing along some art supplies!
