The Art of Nature

Sep 25, 2020 - Sep 27, 2020
An outdoor workshop in contemplative sketching
Join us at Eastover Estate & Eco-Village, Lenox, a holistic healing center for Yoga, Meditation, Tai-chi, Qi-gong, and practice the traditional art of sketching nature. Just as mystics have sought meditative peace in the wood’s deep serenity, the natural world has also inspired artists of all cultures. They have applied their artistic skills to capture it with the techniques of sketching. The act of sketching requires concentration. Over time with skill, practice, and dedication, sketching can develop into a contemplative art. The artist is present in the here & now of the natural world and engaged with its artistic expression on paper. We will explore Eastover’s lovely surrounding woods to capture nature’s art by sketching with graphite, charcoal, or pastel.
The workshop is open to all levels, from rank beginners to advanced students and practicing artists looking to create and share their work in community.… Learn, create, and contemplate in “The Art of Nature” workshop at Eastover Estate.
The artist-instructor is Raphael-Raúl , founder of The Chelsea Drawing Workshop in Manhattan and an elected artist member of the historic Salmagundi Artist Club in NYC.
