Join two talented and local artists, Diana Randolph and Jan Wise, for this artist’s retreat nestled among the old-growth trees at Forest Lodge on Lake Namekagon in Cable, Wisconsin. Discover how to artistically represent your sense of awe and emotional response from being immersed in the pristine lake and forest environment of this unique north woods retreat. Thursdays’ emphasis will include black and white drawing techniques with Diana Randolph and Friday’s emphasis will explore creative ways to represent the forest and water through color pencil and watercolor.
In addition, you will learn about the ecology and cultural history of the landscape with Cable Natural History Museum’s Naturalist and Education Director Emily Stone who is the author of the popular Natural Connections newspaper column.
