You can now register for The Artist’s Workshop: Late Summer Sketching course through Grandfather Mountain.

The course led by artist Preston Montague will teach participants how to tell a story through the arrangement of objects in a sketchbook, as well as basic observation and drawing techniques with pen, pencil and colored pencils.

Though designed for beginners, students with more intermediate skills are encouraged to join.

Grandfather Mountain’s Adult Field Courses series offers participants the chance to explore the mountain like never before. Students examine specific aspects of the park ecosystem through fun, hands-on field excursions.

The course leaders are experts in their fields and include professors, naturalists, scientists and acclaimed photographers, writers, historians and artists. The series runs from April through October.
