Learning to Paint Nature

Saturday, July 15     10:00 am

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a little bit of nature indoors?  Art can be a great way to bring the peace and serenity of the woods right into your living room.  Join local artists Jan Byington and Cheryl Simeone to have fun and learn the painting basics of color mixing and brushwork to paint your own woodland landscape to take home.  Using water mixable oils and canvas, participants will paint a scene from nature or draw inspiration from sketches provided.

A $20 fee per participant will cover all the materials needed for this workshop.

Bring along a bag lunch and stay for a picnic and discussion after class.

This program is suitable for families with children ages 13 and up.

Pre-registration is required and space is limited for this program.



This program will take place at the Redwood Hill Preserve, 44010 Stine Rd., Redwood.  click for map.
