Horticulture + Nature

Fridays, September 8-October 13 | 10 a.m.–2 p.m.

Patricia Sigmier, Local Artist

In this course, we will explore painting with watercolor on location at Case Western Reserve University's Squire Valleevue Farm. This is an ideal venue for painting outdoors using direct observation of the natural light, shadows and ever-changing atmosphere. The changing season brings new colors of autumn to our palettes. This course includes demonstrations, group critiques as well as individual instructions. Students of all skill levels, including beginners, are welcome. Each student will work at his/her own pace. Bring a bag lunch. Limited Enrollment.
