Workshop Oct. 11-13 2019
Sketching Safari

This mini-workshop will be based around a float trip on the Current River from Alley Spring to Eminence MO. We will bring materials for sketching as we enjoy the autumn beauty of the river. I will give suggestions on how to gather visual information in a quick and easy way. After the float trip, when we have access to painting materials, we will turn some of that information into a painting. I will demonstrate how to transition from sketch to painting, and offer suggestions as needed on an individual basis. 
We'll meet up at Ananda Kanan Retreat Center near Willow Springs MO Friday October 11 at 6p. In the morning we'll drive to Alley Spring and do a 3-4 hour float. We can spend some time sketching at the spring before returning to Ananda Kanan. There will be some discussion of the creative process, then each can work on their own painting. Sunday morning we'll finish our work, then have a chance to reflect on our experience with each other.
Vegetarian food will be provided, along with accommodation in the dormitory (single occupancy). Bring your own painting materials and a sketch pad and pencil or marker. Cost is $120, plus canoe rental (canoe rental $45=$23/person). For more info, contact Michael McClure 417-252-4797
