Slow Drawing

Stan Fellows

October 21–22, 2018

All Levels - Plein Air Watercolor

Slow Drawing:

Experience more, remember more. A guided field workshop led by renowned painter and life-long journal keeper, Stan Fellows.



This is a joyful, two-day workshop for curious, adventuresome artists and non-artists to learn the skill of unhurried observation. Doodling a map for someone, you go for clarity, not art, right? Slow drawing works in a similar way: It quiets the mind and lets experience saturate us. A chance to relish rather than rush and put any art ideas aside. The goal will not be finished products. There won't be sharing of journals or critiques. But you will discover practical, everyday tips on how to observe more than you ever imagined possible - all through non-art drawing. You need no artistic skill or even a passing interest in art. We may dabble in watercolor but only in a day-dreamy manner as a fun way of decorating pages.

What you need: your curiosity, an appetite for adventure, and whatever gear the weather suggests. All materials will be included.

Our single focus: cultivate a keen ongoing attentiveness to our days and our travels.
