August is here with the summer heat, thunderstorms, farmers markets, BBQs, travel, family and friends. I’ve been getting lots of painting done and enjoying spending two day weekends with Andrew 🙂 We are kooking forward to returning to Cape Cod in September. I have made a friend on the cape who is also a painter. She knows all the good spots for breaking out the easel so I’m looking forward to seeing her again and painting together. Most of all I look forward to spending time with Andrew, to breakfast on the little deck overlooking the bay, walking the dogs on the beaches, eating lots of lovey fresh seafood and whale spotting. 🐋🦐🐠🌊🐶👫⛱☀️
The next season of classes will be timed a bit differently. Many of you prefer a shorter break in January and some want to continue classes in June. So I have decided to create a new schedule. We will continue with 6 week classes but instead of having a long January break I will divide each 6 week session with a two week break between sessions. Classes will run from the end of September until the end of June. See “Classes” for the new schedule 🙂
The Saturday classes will be held outside as weather allows. The Fall and Spring sessions can bring lots of opportunities for painting the changing seasons :O) As winter sets in we will take the class inside for botanical art 🌱
Class sizes are limited to 6 people. Please sign up early so your are sure to secure a place in the class of your choice.
Nature journaling will continue through the month of July. We will meet on Thursday mornings from 10-1pm….with rain days on either Wednesday or Friday depending on forecasts ☀️ To be on the email list with weekly details of when and where we will be meeting Please email me at email@example.com 🙂
If weather cooperates we will be sketching and painting chickens July 11th at Betsy’s home 🤞🤞🤞
So sorry to have gotten distracted with the week….if anyone is wondering about nature journaling today we will not be meeting. We will be meeting next week at Betsy’s house to draw chickens!!!!!! With cancellations, traveling and bad weather we have not been able to make it Betsy’s so far. Hoping for a nice Thursday next week! 🙂 email me for directions at firstname.lastname@example.org
The studio class ended yesterday….I hope everyone enjoys a lovely summer! So proud of all the work that everyone has done over the year, so many lovely drawings and paintings! 🙂
My summer will continue with Nature Journaling classes through July on Thursday mornings, Plein Air on Saturday mornings and lots of painting on my own 🎨 We are still looking forward to painting and sketching animals at Muscoot Farm, landscapes and Betsy’s chickens 🐓
I need a head count for the Thursday Nature Journaling class. We will be meeting from 10-1pm at Whispering Pine Nursery. All mediums welcome 🙂 If the class is ever rescheduled because of weather I will text or email changes before 8am the day of the class. Looking forward to taking advantage of the wide variety of subjects available at the nursery!
The Wednesday Studio Class is topped off so I don’t need a head count unless for some reason you are not attending this week. Bring a subject that your working on or something that inspires you! See you all soon!
The Saturday Plein Air Class will be meeting at Ward Pound Ridge this week down by the stream. Such a beautiful place to paint!
