Fall 1998 Newsletter, The Art of Noticing

This edition of our newsletter, Discoveries, focuses on observation.  Kathy Hocker is Juneau’s premier artist-naturalist, teaching classes on field techniques for all ages. In 1998, she wrote a feature article for our newsletter, entitled The Art of Noticing.  In the article, Hocker explains that “field sketching isn’t just for artists. Many people who plead ‘I can’t draw’ in most situations are less intimidated by sketching outdoors. This is because the goal of field sketching is not necessarily to create a realistic representation, but to use the process of drawing to learn more. The actual picture that results may be secondary to the insight gained from creating that picture.”
