Two presentation sessions available: June 2, 9, and 16, 2018, AND/OR Sept 8, 15 and 22, 2018, 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon.
Volunteer to lead a nature walk and present to 12 students in artist Pam Luer’s nature art class. Choose one date, several, or all dates! Artist and instructor Pam Luer’s art has been licensed on products sold at Target, Crate & Barrel, Bed Bath & Beyond, and other retailers.
Course Description: The sketchbook has long been favored as a visual journal by natural artists for its portability, flexibility and the freedom to experiment. This three-session workshop will allow you to take your art with you—in your backyard, to the park, or on your next vacation. All you need is a love of nature, an inquisitive eye, and a few carefully selected drawing tools! Each session will include a walk with a naturalist, who will help sharpen your observational skills as you explore the flora and fauna of the Arboretum. Additionally, with Pam’s expert artistic guidance, participants will learn to observe and draw in new ways while expanding their understanding of the natural world. Put skills to use right away and enjoy the rewards of documenting the everyday beauty that is all around.
