Bring your favorite journal, art materials or just pencil and paper and join the Green Sketching group. We sketch the world around us to observe and connect with our surroundings. While drawing we try to mindfully to stay in the moment, without attachement to the final product. Through this practice our drawing skills and confidence ultimately improve over time. Green sketching can be nature journaling, urban sketching, mindful drawing, adding descriptive words to a sketch, or even doodling - whatever gets the pencil moving over the paper! This group is for all levels of skill and experience.

We will meet on the U.C. Berkeley campus at the fountain just below the law school (across from Cafe Strada at Bancroft Way and College Ave). Then we will walk a short distance to the large oak trees in Faculty Glade. Please note that there is some very limited, free 2 hour parking in this neighborhood. Future meetings will be held at other outdoor Berkeley locations.
