Field Sketching for Everyone

Join the 2018 Tern Festival Guest Artist Kathy Hocker for a fun hands-on workshop that explores the life and landscapes of Yakutat through field sketching. No drawing experience is required. Kathy will lead a series of lessons designed to strengthen drawing skills and find the delight of closer observation.

Art from our featured artist and local artists will be on display and available for purchase throughout the festival.
