Sketching the Wissahickon with Jane Klein

October 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Meet at Rex Avenue Trailhead

Relax into the pleasure of drawing outdoors with a group of like-minded enthusiasts. All that’s needed is a sketchbook, a favorite pencil and an appreciation for the beauty of the Wissahickon (and perhaps a towel or blanket to sit on). Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned artist you can take in the sounds of the water and the smells of early autumn without the expectation of turning your sketch into a finished work of art. Practical guidance will be provided to those who wish.

Distance: 1 Mile

Level: Moderate
