Sketchbook Traveler Virtual Drawing Workshops

  • November 7, 14 and 21 | 11:00am-12:30pm

Work alongside a professional artist from the comfort of your own backyard! Join acclaimed painter and author James L. McElhinney for a series of virtual workshops inspired by his most recent publication, Sketchbook Traveler. Tune in to discuss and learn more about the practice of drawing landscapes with the legacy of Frederic Church and his masterwork Olana as a backdrop. Each session, James will lead participants through a short conversation and model techniques and practices while sketching onsite at Olana. Register for one or all three sessions. Workshops will be conducted via Zoom. Access to reliable internet and a computer compatible with Zoom is required. A suggested materials list will be sent to participants in advance of the class.  Advanced registration is required. $45 per person per class ($30 for Olana members).
