Learn Field Sketching with Susan Abbott

Generously supporting the Milton Artists’ Guild and Vermont Land Trust!

$5 for members of Milton Artists’ Guild or Vermont Land Trust, $10 for others.

Take advantage of this incredible day with renowned Vermont artist Susan Abbott to learn techniques for field sketching and explore the natural beauty of Vermont’s wetlands with the Vermont Land Trust!

Join artist Susan Abbott and Vermont Land Trust ecologist Allaire Diamond for a fun and instructive drawing and nature workshop!

We’ll start the morning at Milton Artists Guild learning sketching techniques and then caravan to a nearby wetland on a conserved farm for a guided “sketching treasure hunt” of the plants and animals of this fascinating ecosystem. We’ll finish our morning of drawing and exploration by sharing a picnic lunch and our sketchbooks and have a discussion about the vital importance of wetlands and wetland restoration.


  • Sketchbook no bigger than 8” x 10”
  • Waterproof fine point felt-tip pen (Micron or Pitt Faber Castell for example)
  • Watercolors (optional)

We will be outdoors, so please also bring bug spray, hat, and long pants with closed shoes are advised for tick-protection. We will also have a picnic lunch, so please pack a lunch to enjoy after the class on the beautiful VT wetlands!
