The second half of the week consisted of workshops and field trips.  It’s always hard to choose and invariably the ones I wanted overlapped.  This year I took two workshops, Drawing Raptors and Luscious Grays, and left some free time for sketching up in the Blue Ridge Parkway as well as at the farm on campus.  There were so many beautiful, interesting or cute things to draw that it was hard to choose!  All in all, I learned a lot, had a lot of encouragement for my work, met some great new people, and can’t wait to head to Washington, DC for the 2018 Conference.  Enjoy!
