The basis of 5-day workshop will be sketching and painting on location around Santa Fe. Basic drawing and quick, intuitive watercolor will be taught, and will become the heart of our Santa Fe journals.(and yea, Helen CAN teach you to draw,even if you haven't drawn since the third grade) Using the city’s Mexican, Indian and Spanish influences, we’ll draw flowers, buildings, food, farmers market treasures., and in Santa Fe's museums to inbue our special journal with a sense of place. We’ll also carve original stamps and add collage to our journals. Our handmade sketchbooks will be filled to the brim with color, images and memories of our week in historic Santa Fe.
