About the event

Breathtaking birds have always inspired artists. This is your opportunity to learn to capture the beauty of Conestee Nature Preserve's  birds under the expert instruction of artist and teacher Meredith Skinner!

Mere will guide you in plein air watercolor technique. "Plein air" (French for "in the open air") was popularized by Impressionists, who attempted to capture light and nature in their constantly changing states. We are always inspired by that ever-changing renewal of the natural world, and the birds those changes bring-we trust you will be too!

All materials for this class are provided, and you will leave with your unique work of art!
