Special Art Class: "Drawing and Painting Wildflowers"

Date: Saturday, March 21, 2020
Time: 9:00-11:00 AM
Price: Complimentary with regular park admission of $4/adults and $3 kids ages 6-12

Embrace your inner botanist and inner artist during this special wildflower drawing and painting class! Learning to draw enhances your observation and critical thinking skills. Plus, nothing is more beautiful that wildflowers in spring. This is the season for capturing these beauties. We will learn to look for the identifying characteristics of plants and translate these to a sketch book or watercolor paper. You will need to bring your own sketchbook and drawing or painting implements.
 
This class will cover basic concepts so no drawing skill is necessary! The focus will be on learning to observe so even if you can't draw a straight line you join in the fun!
 
Suggested supplies to bring: 80 lb sketchbook paper or better for drawing 300 lb arches; watercolor paper if you choose paint, 2H pencil, HB pencil.
