Event details

Want to paint your favorite pet?  Perhaps you’ve always wanted to try your hand at painting the awkward blue heron you see hunting for a meal in the marsh. These creatures are captivating and have personalities just like people that are waiting to be captured on canvas or paper.  This workshop provides tips and personal instruction on how to paint feathers, fur and expressive animal eyes.  Bring your favorite animal or wildlife photos or work from images provided by the instructor.  All art mediums are welcome.
