Summer Studio: Artists as Observers

July 20–22, 2021
10:00 A.M. – 1:30 P.M. (Includes a 30 minute lunch break)

What is a summer studio?

The summer studio is a hands-on three day program designed for K–12 educators. Join us as we engage in, from an artist perspective, observational drawing of the wonderful world of insects.

You’ll be introduced to observational drawing, colored pencil techniques, and have time to hone your observational skills. You’ll discover classroom curricular connections to the California Visual Arts Standards and the Environmental Principles and Goals. Collaborate with others in generating classroom applications for the coming new school year.

No previous drawing experience is necessary.


No need to leave your home! Zoom—all sessions will be held through Zoom.

Upon completed registration, prior to July 20th, you will receive the Zoom link, additional information, and the basic program and drawing materials you’ll need.
