Explore the elasticity of time while drawing outside in the expansive dunescapes of Cape Cod. Sharpen your perceptual abilities beginning with in-studio exercises that focus on the pacing of hand/body/eye/mind coordination. Employ fresh techniques while drawing outside in the landscape, where shifting sands and breaking waves so beautifully display the passage of geologic time. All levels welcome.
