This is a two-day workshop: Saturdays, August 14 & 21
Explore basic watercolor painting with a two-day workshop. Created for beginning and intermediate level painters looking for an afternoon with other bird, wildlife, and nature enthusiasts. This workshop introduces simple techniques while exploring elements of nature and wildlife found at the Center. Participants progress at their own pace with instructor guidance, typically completing one to two projects. Dress for the weather and bring a bag lunch.
Instructor José 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. His hand-painted wood carvings of native Wisconsin birds, fish, and wildlife are featured at local businesses, including Schlitz Audubon and Boerner Botanical Gardens.
This program will take place entirely outdoors, weather permitting. (If inclement weather necessitates that we be indoors, we will spread out in the classroom.) 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. Participants must wear a mask when you are within six feet of others.
Fee is for both sessions and does not include materials. A supply list will be sent to all participants after registration.
Members: $80 | Non-members: $100
