Quick Sketching in Watercolor

Watercolor workshop in Yosemite Valley
October 3, 2014 to October 5, 2014

Autumn in Wawona is an artist’s delight, with stunning foliage colors and low-angled light. All ability levels are invited to join an award-winning artist during this three-day workshop, which includes sketching and watercolor technique. Take a step back in time at the Yosemite Pioneer History Center, where live models in period clothing will inspire your artwork. Each day, you’ll explore a different setting, including Mariposa Grove’s big trees, Wawona Meadow and the shimmering South Fork of the Merced River. Take home your own creative portfolio from a weekend exploring Yosemite’s wonders. This workshop begins Friday morning in Wawona and runs through Sunday afternoon.

Experience package includes camping Oct. 2–6 at Wawona Campground plus entry into Yosemite. Information about upgrading your package will be available once you have registered. View a suggested packing list for this program.
