Saturdays, August 15 – September 12
Explore the basics of watercolor painting and find inspiration in nature in this five-week course. Created for the beginning painter and those who may want to try something new, this watercolor course will introduce simple techniques while observing wildlife mounts and the natural beauty found at the Center. We will meet outside on the Veranda, on the east side of the building.
Instructor Jose Acevedo uses art to explore the natural world, and finds inspiration in the birds, fish and wildlife of the Midwest. His watercolor paintings use a combination of transparent watercolor paints and inks. Acevedo is also a self-taught wood carver, and his detailed and hand-painted wood carvings of native birds, fish, and wildlife are featured at local businesses, including Schlitz Audubon and Boerner Botanical Gardens.
Fee does not include materials. A supply list will be sent to all participants after registration. Fee is for all five classes. Please bring a portable folding chair to class.
We will practice social distancing when we are able to, but because of the nature of small-group programming, it will not always be possible. For the health and safety of all, participants must wear a mask when you are within six feet of others. Please do not attend if you are sick or believe you have been exposed to the virus.
