Forest Lodge on Lake Namekagon


Natural Expressions: Capturing Landscape in Watercolor  

May 10-12, Weekend Retreat at Forest Lodge Near Cable, WI

Discover how to capture and communicate your experiences in nature. This late fall workshop takes place at Forest Lodge, a historic, 872 acre estate on Lake Namakagon in the heart of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. The old forest and serene water will serve as the focus of your practice as you experience the changing of the seasons with all of your senses. Artmaking instruction includes creating your own sketchbook/journal with simple bookbinding techniques, basic field drawing in pencil, pen and ink, and plein aire watercolor painting. Selected readings along with guided writing exercises are combined with onsite field art instruction and plenty of personal time to give you the tools to create an illustrated journal of this and future adventures. Educators will leave with valuable resources, techniques and inspiration to help others connect to nature through art.
