FIELD SKETCHING: Drawn to Nature
(3) Days. 10am-3pm. TBA

Shifting clouds against blue skies, a dancing butterfly and a bird on the wing, fall is a great time to enjoy the outdoors and capture nature in Houston. After initial instruction in the classroom, the group will move outdoors amongst dozens of species of plants, herbs and flowers on the Museum’s grounds and in the gardens of the Houston Garden Center. Early naturalists exploring the countryside recorded their observations in field journals. We will learn to do the same.
