This spring, the workshop goal will be to emphasize the Natural World as an inspiration for our projects. We'll work with materials straight from the flora and fauna found here in the North Country. The objective is to be eco-friendly and create artworks that reflect the beauty all around us. We'll combine traditional drawing and painting techniques with 21st century media, such as collage and journaling. We'll be reviewing the works of Patrick Dougherty and Andy Goldsworthy; both artists created "land art" works in natural spaces, such as forests and beaches. Dougherty has created the "stick house" at the Wild Center in Tupper Lake, NY.

Sandra Nestlerode-Hale is a working artist and has lectured on Art in England, Maine, Pennsylvania. She has a Masters degree from Keele University in England. Her two one-woman shows were held in Maine 2003 and Pennsylvania 2018, and she has exhibited in juried shows here in the North Country since 2019.
