Art in Nature Bluff Walk with Marit Fischer

Date: Wednesday, August 17
Time: 5:30-7pm

Meeting Place: Polly Judd Park
Group Size: 16 people

There’s more to finding yourself in nature than just being outside. Join Marit Fischer for an art hike designed to ground and center you. Take a short walk along the trail from Polly Judd Park and then settle in on your blankets for a grounding and mindfulness exercise, followed by a brief lesson on the basic principles of drawing what you see. For 30 quiet minutes, you will focus your attention on the world near and around you to interpret whatever it is that catches your eye into a
work of art. We will follow with the opportunity to share and a conversation about the exercise.

This is a unique opportunity to appreciate nature in a new and personal way. All participants will be expected to be respectful of others seeking a quiet, connective experience. All ages are
welcome. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Route: We will walk the easy trail south from Polly Judd Park to a shady spot under the Ponderosas, no more than one mile each way.

What to Bring:

  • A blanket or pad for sitting

  • Your drawing medium of choice (pencils, charcoal, pastels, crayons)

  • A notebook or sturdy drawing pad for each person attending

  • Shoes appropriate for hiking

  • Water

  • Hat
