“There can be no better place than nature to embrace and capture the flower of life,” said Elisa Miller, who will lead the class. “The beauty of creation is found in the continual path of the river of life. A flowing piece of artwork with harmony, balance, unity, contrast and color, combined with one’s interpretation of nature, can become a masterpiece to behold.”
Charcoal and paper will be provided. If you prefer you can bring your own art tools.
There is no fee for this lesson.
If you wish, the artwork created can be sold to benefit animals of Lennie’s Fund, which is an affiliate of the Grassroots Art Project.
The Grassroots Art Project is also asking the community for donations of art supplies, including art pencils, pastels, chalk, erasers and charcoal. Cash donations are also welcome and will be used to further enhance growth of the Grassroots Art Project.
