This class is full and closed for registration.

Ages 8-12

Sharon Bladholm

We will explore the marshes, creeks and woods of the Sun Foundation to observe the larger natural world, taking sketch books with us to make “Nature Notes” We’ll collect leaves and flowers to use along with other specimens (such as preserved fish, frogs, turtles, bones, shells, and coral.) back in our barn to create more detailed art. We will draw and paint with watercolor, pencils and cray pas for two days, incorporating our notes form the natural world. On the third day we will begin working with clay, learning how to translate our ideas into #-dimensions. We will combine our own inspirations and observations of the natural world as well as use our imaginations to create drawings and paintings, and sculptures with clay.
