Leaves, trees, and wild animals are just some aspects of the natural world reimagined by self-taught artists who have drawn inspiration from the land and environment. In this session, AFAM educator and artist Natalie Beall will explore the creative practices of Ronald Lockett, Joseph Yoakum, and others. Prompts for looking and drawing will be shared throughout the evening, and participants will be invited to share their work.
