About the Event

Recommended for ages 16 and up

Description: Spring is full of beautiful colors but capturing these colors on paper sometimes can feel like a daunting task. With the help of spring wildflowers and new leaves, this Ijams Field Day will introduce participants to the basics of watercolor painting including tips on mixing colors, composing a painting, and enjoying the spring weather with a paintbrush in hand. This is a beginner course led by Ijams teacher/naturalist and amateur painter Eliza Phillips.

Materials Participants Should Bring: Comfortable trail walking shoes, hat, water bottle, snacks, weather appropriate clothing, and a handss-free way to carry everything. Optional: camera, hand lens. Watercolor paper, paints, and brushes will be provided; however, participants are welcome to bring their own.

Information to Note: This program will take us in search of spring ephemeral wildflowers and will likely take place on trails with roots, rocks, and some elevation change. We will spend the entirety of the class outdoors.

Location: This program meets outside the Ijams Visitor Center.

Please check your junk mail folder the day before this program if you have not received an email containing program details.
