Explore Michigan’s Autumn, Express it in Drawing!
Develop your skills no matter what level, in the warm company of others in the peaceful woods of Camp Friedenswald. Draw by playing, editing, experimenting, and self-discovery. Practice framing, sighting, blind observation, and other skills needed to draw what you see and feel. Practice ways to make the hard things easier, and how to use the easy things more purposefully and profoundly.
