Explore a different garden setting each week to capture its beauty in plein air. Each session begins with demonstrations based on the subject matter of the day, emphasizing different technical elements for capturing light, shadow, and form. Using chalk pastels and charcoal, discover the versatility and vibrant colors of the medium.
