with artist Pam Luer and naturalist Lynette Anderson

For adults of all skill levels.

This workshop is designed for artists of all skill levels who never lost their childhood love to "go play outside." Co-taught by naturalist Lynette Anderson and artist Pam Luer, participants will spend the day exploring the landscape which usually remains off-limits to the general public at Belwin Conservancy in Afton.

Looking closely at nature through both a naturalist's and an artist's eye, participants will learn about the plants, insects, birds, and animals you discover, and create sketchbook drawings of what inspires you. At this time of the year, participants may be able to hear the frogs calling, watch for early migratory birds, and see seasonal changes at the pond, which is especially wonderful in the spring.

The day will begin indoors with presentations and demonstrations by both instructors, followed by a guided walk to explore the trails. Depending on weather conditions, students will be given ample time to work in their sketchbooks wither out on the trails or back indoors. Both instructors will provide significant one-on-one attention to hone the student's knowledge and talents, and enrich their experience.

Bring a sack lunch. No materials are provided; request a basic materials list upon enrollement. Directos to meeting places will also be provided upon enrollment. Bring a snack and dress for the weather.

with artist Pam Luer and naturalist Lynette Anderson

For adults of all skill levels.

This workshop is designed for artists of all skill levels who never lost their childhood love to "go play outside." Co-taught by naturalist Lynette Anderson and artist Pam Luer, participants will spend the day exploring the landscape which usually remains off-limits to the general public at Belwin Conservancy in Afton.

Looking closely at nature through both a naturalist's and an artist's eye, participants will learn about the plants, insects, birds, and animals you discover, and create sketchbook drawings of what inspires you. At this time of the year, participants may be able to hear the frogs calling, watch for early migratory birds, and see seasonal changes at the pond, which is especially wonderful in the spring.

The day will begin indoors with presentations and demonstrations by both instructors, followed by a guided walk to explore the trails. Depending on weather conditions, students will be given ample time to work in their sketchbooks wither out on the trails or back indoors. Both instructors will provide significant one-on-one attention to hone the student's knowledge and talents, and enrich their experience.

Bring a sack lunch. No materials are provided; request a basic materials list upon enrollement. Directos to meeting places will also be provided upon enrollment. Bring a snack and dress for the weather.
