Adventure Sketching with Maria Coryell-Martin, June 22 & 23



Prepare for sketching on your summer adventures! With the beautiful landscape of Fort Worden and Port Townsend as our inspiration, we will create colorful and expressive sketches using ink and watercolor. Throughout the weekend we will practice fundamental sketching techniques, spontaneous watercolor, and creative page layout. Each participant will receive a travel sketch kit complete with a custom-filled pocket watercolor palette, waterbrush, pen, and sketchbook. All levels welcome! 

About Maria 

Maria Coryell-Martin is an expeditionary artist following the tradition of traveling artists as naturalists and educators. Since 2005, she has focused on painting polar and glaciated regions, working scientists and expeditions in the Pacific NW, Alaska, Canada, Greenland, and the Antarctic Peninsula. In the field, she sketches with ink and watercolor, and collects multimedia recordings to build her palette of place, a record of experience, climate, and color. This work inspires studio paintings for exhibits, as well as multimedia presentations and hands-on workshops to promote observation, scientific inquiry, and environmental awareness.
