Enjoy an Albuquerque "staycation" exploring interesting historical and urban places with a sketchbook journal and camera or other photo device. Learn how to make your travel journal your most valued souvenir. Practice basic observation and artistic skills to quick sketch, paint, photograph and write wherever you are. You will learn a variety of techniques to effectively tell the story of your travels and daily life. Improve your images and apply the artistic concepts of composition, value, natural perspective, color and more. Each week the class will meet in a different location. Note: The first class meets at Albuquerque Botanic Gardens, front patio, 2601 Central Ave. NE. A materials list is available at ce.unm.edu.
