Four Forests: Walking and Drawing


SKU: 12 Category:


SJIMA is pleased to offer four classes with Joe Miller.  He has worked with students in oak forests in Kentucky, cottonwood forests in Utah and our very own woods on San Juan Island.  “We are together on the Earth: mountains are rising, streams are falling; all about us is constant growth and decay.  We get lost in our drawing; we find ourselves by discovering a hidden trail, then lost again. Then found.” (J. Miller)
