Watercolor Nature Studies Family Workshop
Vermont summers afford us wonderful opportunities to get outside and become inspired by our natural surroundings. Join ArtisTree and the National Park Service under the big tent for a family watercolor workshop. Create amazing sketches and paintings using conventional as well as unconventional art materials: tree bark, leaves, river rocks, antlers, butterflies, and more. We’ll have fun experimenting with new and playful watercolor techniques and try our hand at more traditional painting methods, too. Through working with a variety of natural materials, you’ll feel inspired to look more closely at the stunning details in the world all around you. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
This class is held at ArtisTree Community Arts Center.
