A historically-based remote learning experience for artists

Sketch of honeysuckle tree branch, 1901, Rachael Robinson Elmer

A free distance drawing course is being offered by the Rokeby Museum of Vermont. It has been created by Montreal-based artist Courtney Clinton, and is inspired by the experience of a young Vermont girl, Rachael Robinson Elmer (1878-1919).

Lessons will be shared every two weeks, and participants are invited to post their efforts to the course website. The course is historically-based, and encourages participants to explore the natural world around them through a sketchbook practice.

I learned about this opportunity from a James Gurney blog post.
