Traveling with Your Sketchbook with Jane Sellier, May 24-26, 9:30am-12:30pm daily. $175, $150 members. Most of us wouldn't dream of traveling without a camera but all too often photos fall short of our expectations and we forget where we snapped the picture. With a sketchbook, you can record sights exactly the way you want to remember them by making a basic sketch and note about where you were. You'll remember sights, sounds, smells; all the sensations you experienced while there. No previous drawing experience is required. Jane will show you how to keep it simple, interesting and satisfying. We'll be in and out of the studio, weather permitting.You can also purchase Jane Sellier's book Sketches from the RV Years                                                                                                       Supply List
