Enjoy the outdoors with this engaging activity. Artist Bethany Bennett, MFA leads you through sketch techniques and wellness exercises to bring you closer to nature. Join us at ACA main campus with your pencil and sketch pad! The fun of sketching is that you don't have to draw something accurately. You simply sit, breathe, observe closely, put pencil to paper and enjoy the process! You will be amazed at how intricate and detailed nature's designs can be.
