Painting in the Park Workshop
Draw in the morning, paint in the afternoon and enjoy a fun day in the sun! Let’s take our pencils to the great outdoors and capture the beauty of nature in our own backyard where we’ll enjoy drawing trees, the lake and beautiful sky. We will finish back in the lab for an afternoon session of painting and be sure to stop to enjoy lunch out on the deck overlooking the beautiful scenery. We don’t need Picasso’s - we’d rather have members looking for adventure, education, and a day of social fun! Instructor: Jan Fraser
