Your Practice + The Wilderness


Above: Outdoor Artmaking & Day Hike led by PSUGD student Nina Berry

Saturday, 10/31

Calling all artists, illustrators, designers, and lovers of the outdoors: The PSU Outdoor Program is expanding its horizons this term and offering an hike dedicated to the relationship between art and the outdoors. Art in the Forest is an inclusive hiking trip that focuses on creative practice outdoors. We will be exploring an area of wilderness outside the city, and bringing our toolbox of art supplies with us. We will spend part of the day hiking, and part of the day filling our sketchbooks and notebooks with inspiration in the backcountry, away from the computer.
For more trip details, contact Nina Berry at
To register for the trip, or for more information, visit the PSU Outdoor Program at 505 SW Harrison.
