Join watercolor artist Brenda Sloane for this fun workshop. We'll take a quick walk around the sanctuary (weather permitting) to search out mammals that are active this time of year such as white-tailed deer, foxes, weasels, squirrels, and more. Then we'll return to the Barn to learn different watercolor painting techniques. Finally, we'll put brush to paper and create watercolor paintings of a mammal of our choice, using photographs or mammal mounts for subjects. This program is appropriate for beginners as well as more advanced artists. No previous experience is necessary.
