Summer Drawing with Lenka Sage

Wednesdays, July 23-August 13, 1-5 pm at CMC Edwards

Many people are afraid to draw, but the truth is that drawing is not as hard as it seems. If you can relax, get

your mind around the task, and begin to understand what you see, you can draw. In this 4-lesson course, you’ll learn how to

analyze what you see in the world around you and communicate it on paper. Through hands on projects, and guided by a

professional artist, you will explore the critical concepts of line, mass, form, perspective, value, and composition, building

a solid foundation for all your art and design work. You will also delve into complex drawing techniques involving value,

color, and contemporary stylistic approaches. Most importantly, you’ll also discover that drawing can be fun. Did you know that

spheres have inner edges? Or why artists measure with their thumbs? Grab your charcoal and chalk pastels…this course is

your first step to developing your craft as an artist. Syn # 86274

When Ice Ruled Leadville @ Leadville Campus

Dr. Vince Matthews, one of the top experts in the field of geology, is leading this one-day workshop. Participants will never look at this region’s scenic beauty the same way after this day of studying it first-hand. Leadville’s spectacular scenery reflects a time when ice covered and formed much of the landscape. It was a time of valleys filled with thousands of feet of ice; of 600-foot-deep lakes forming, then catastrophically emptying in a day.

Participants will learn to read the signs of this classic glacial terrain in the field. Generations of geologists all over America have studied Turquoise Lake in their classrooms. Now you can study its marvels first hand. Follow the glacially dammed lake from Malta to Buena Vista. Experience periglacial features such as patterned ground, rock glaciers, and sackungen.
