We will meet at the Juan Santa Cruz Picnic Area as a destination to begin our observation of the landscape. I will teach you how to begin a postcard- sized painting, tips on composition, color mixing, and how to tie it all together with details. No prior painting experience is necessary. Appropriate for ages 16 and up.
I am an award winning artist and teacher with 30+ years of experience teaching art to all ages. I love being in nature and finding just the right spot to document in paint. Observation creates a lasting memory of a place and making your own postcard gives you an experience that a camera just can't duplicate.
I will provide your set up and materials for painting. You won't need to bring anything for this workshop. Included will be…
We will conduct our workshop at Juan Santa Cruz Picnic Area. Turn left after mile marker 5.0 on North Kinney Road, before the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. We'll meet at in the parking lot of the Picnic Area. Park near the bathrooms. There are some beautiful vistas with some of the oldest Saguaro cacti around. All materials will be included and you will leave with your own personal painting of the desert to remember your visit.
最多可有6位年满16周岁的参与者参加。 No requirements for prior painting knowledge are needed.
This will be a fun and non threatening art experience for ages 16+. You will make your own postcard-sized painting of the desert landscape. After the workshop, you can visit the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, right next door on North Kinney Road for lunch and to take in the museum.
