Painting Natural History Collections
I had an opportunity to teach Painting Natural History Collections, a 1.5 hour online workshop during Winslow Art Center’s free Winter Bash last week. To my surprise and delight, more than 200 people from six countries joined in. How inspiring to find so many people interested in this subject! I’ve been poking around old museums specimens for many years and they have provided me hours of fascination, a wealth of painting subjects, and outstanding opportunities to expand my knowledge of natural history. I hope those who attended the session will now enjoy making discoveries of their own from the vast richness of museum collections.
Tips & Techniques– If you would like to watch the session, you can still sign up for the Winter Bash and access all of the online presentations. Signing up is free. I just opened a new four-week class, Drawn to Nature, and (fortunately or unfortunately depending on your position) it sold out in 24 hours. If you are interested in future classes, sign up for the waiting list on the Drawn to Nature link to receive an email when classes open. Thank you for your incredible support!
