Location: Room 208

Drawing from nature is a great way to practice observational skills, drawing skills, and learn about natural history.  Do you like drawing, or want to learn?  Do you like spending time in nature or your garden, and want a new way to document your experiences?  This may be the class for you!  Join us in this three week class as we learn skills for observational drawing, and experiment with various portable media, including pen drawing, watercolor, watercolor pencil, and graphite, in various combinations.

In good weather, class will be split between indoors and outdoors.  Specimens of “nature stuff” provided for indoor class.  Wonderfully, nature is everywhere so there is something to draw everywhere we go!  In this class, we will combine creative expression with observational drawing, and add a dash of natural history.  Ignite your creativity and bring your curiosity – in this class, we use both!  Beginners welcome!

Alina Nuebel


Alina Nuebel has been painting for over fifteen years across a range of media, and has been making art since the first time someone left a box crayons unattended (with a bit of a detour through higher education to study ecology). Alina’s art tends to be a playful tour though the local Sonoma County landscape –though not always at the scale that people expect! These days, most of Alina’s paintings and drawings are strongly influenced by natural history illustration and a general fascination with plants, insects, ecology, and the tiny organisms that are easily overlooked.
