We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Wednesday, March 25, 2020.

Field Expedition-Drawing to Learn The Sonoran Desert (Ages 18 & Up)

Instructor: Dr. Lee Ann Woolery

Explore the desert through artists' eyes. Before photography, many scientists were skilled as both artist and scientist. Botanists, zoologists, geologists all sketched to learn about the subject they studied thus advancing their scientific understanding. The Tucson Mountain Field Station at Desert Discovery Center is surrounded by an ancient saguaro cactus forest. We'll explore the concept of "drawing to learn" so bring your sketch book. We'll be drawing, translating the land's stories; giant saguaros, road runners, woodpeckers, and Palo Verde trees. All levels of experience welcome. A materials fee of $5 is payable at first class or bring your own. A materials list will be forwarded after registration.

Continue west on Gates Pass Road over the mountain pass and watch for the last paved pullout on the right (G10) before the intersection at Kinney Road. The one mile dirt driveway will take you back to the parking and a pathway leading to classroom/office complex.
