Exploring the Natural World through Art

Come in from the cold and explore the natural world through art. This four-week session will meet on Saturday afternoons at the Marion Natural History Museum from 2:00 – 4:00 pm in February (February 3, 10, 17 and 24).

The first two Saturdays we will be learning how to sketch and observe specimens from the museum with black and white mediums to learn about lights and darks to create form.

The second two Saturdays we will sketch, paint and observe specimens with color and learn more about color mixing and the color wheel.

All four classes will focus on shading, positive/negative space, and composition. Journaling in the sketchbooks will also be encouraged.

Participants will bring their own bound sketchbooks that have heavy duty paper or watercolor paper. Additional materials list to follow.
