Natural History Workshop: Mandala Watercolor Workshop
Thursday, June 21, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Instructor: Susan Brookreson
PVMN Re-Cert Eligible
Join Susan’s Art Inspired by Nature: Mandala Watercolor Workshop. This will be an evening of art, nature, creativity and fun!
A mandala is an ancient, universal art form. It is circular in format; Mandala means circular in Sanskrit. Nature will be the inspiration for the creation of these mandalas. Mandala shapes in nature include flowers, the sun and moon, various fruits, shells, spiderwebs etc. These mandalas can be abstract, symbolic, nonobjective, include realism or be a combination. Drawing ability is not required. The emphasis will be creativity, self expression and the natural world.
Suggested supplies: watercolors (profession grade unnecessary), watercolor brushes, a black marker, watercolor paper (get inexpensive paper that has some heft). Regular drawing paper will not work with watercolors. *A limited amount of some of these items will be available to use at the workshop. Do not let lack of brushes or marker stop you from registering!
This event lead by Susan Brookreson, retired art teacher, Master Naturalist and nature lover, is geared towards all nature lovers and all levels of artistic abilities.
This class will be held mainly indoors, with a outdoor stroll through the trails to look to nature for inspiration.
Dress for the weather, wear comfortable walking shoes and bring along some drinking water.
Everyone is welcome to attend this workshop, regardless of their artistic skills. Children may register and attend when accompanied by an adult. Registration is required.
