Winter is the perfect time to appreciate and draw deciduous trees. Each kind of tree has their own unique structure. We will start with learning/reviewing the basic drawing techniques for drawing 3-dimensional trunks and branches. Then we will learn about the structure of the different kinds of trees and tips on how to create that look. Lastly, we will use colored pencils and colored paper to create a couple finished winter tree art drawings. The perfect way to spend time inside when It’s cold outside!
