This course is also helpful for folks who once sketched long ago and need a refresher on the basics of depicting line, shape, form and color.

Great Kiskadee, by Veronica Bowers

“Christine is a gifted artist and a wonderful instructor”
—Veronica Bowers, California.

Veronica illustrated this Great Kiskadee after taking the Introduction to Nature Sketching course, and while accompanying Christine on her Sketching Holiday in Honduras trip in January, 2016. She had never tried watercolors before, but needless to say, she was pleased with her results!
