John Muir (Jack) Laws is doing free sketching demonstrations at 5 different locations. This hour-and-a-half class will be repeated five times over two days throughout the Bay Area. See locations and times below. These events are free, but I strongly encourage you to put some money into Jack's donation bucket to support this work.

Here's the event description on Jack's website:
Learn a variety of approaches to drawing coniferous and broadleaf trees. Learn how to make fast sketches to get the gestalt of a tree in moments with pencil or watercolor. Explore methods to capture the branching patterns and texture of foliage in more careful drawings. Make close-ups of the details of a tree by learning ways of drawing and painting leaves needles, and a great trick to block in the symmetry of a pine cone.

Note that this is a Guest Post: not an official SF Sketchers meetup, but a sketching-related event that might be interesting to some people in the group.
