What a summer it has been! We wrapped up our Summer Workshop schedule this past weekend with a Nature Journaling/Field Sketching class taught by artist and naturalist Sherrie York. Here’s a few photos from an inspiring day at Buffalo Peaks Ranch!

In short, a very memorable day at Buffalo Peaks Ranch! Thanks goes to Sherrie York, a wonderful class of field-sketchers, and South Park for supplying another magnificent blue sky day!

For more on Sherrie York’s work, do yourself a huge favor and visit her gorgeous website! Sherrie also has a very fun & informative blog, Brush & Baren.

And congratulations to Sherrie for her inclusion in this year’s 40th Annual Birds in Art exhibition at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum. Here’s one of Sherrie’s wonderful reduction linocuts:

We’re already excited about next year! We hope to expand our workshop offerings, and definitely have Sherrie York back whenever she has the time!
