Park Academy provides professional career preparation for park interns, professional development opportunities for park staff, and personal enrichment for volunteers by providing ongoing learning opportunities. Conservancy members are also invited and encouraged to register for classes of interest.
Classes are scheduled all year round and cover a wide range of topics, covering everything from natural resource topics to computer skills. Here are some of the class offerings:
John Muir Laws: Sandhill Cranes (using shape, structure, and light to draw what you see)
December 13, 2016
Location: Presidio of San Francisco
This workshop is not about drawing Sandhill Cranes. It is about how your ability to draw anything improves when you understand what you see and train your eye to capture critical negative shapes, gestures, and angles! All experience levels are welcome.
