Sunday…last day of our show…

Sunday,  December 6th is the last day of our botanical art show.  I am so proud of my students and all their lovely work.  If you haven’t had a chance to go, try to get there over the next 3 days.

For all the exhibitors – you can pick up your pieces on Monday from 1-5 or Tuesday and Wednesday from 9-4.

Thanks to all for contributing to a wonderful event! Well done!

Lovely article on white on white :O)

White often makes us all shutter a bit…but the main thing to remember it that white is rarely white….enjoy the following link :O)  Sourced from the American Society of Botanical Artists.

Classes beginning next week :O)

Looking forward to seeing everyone next week 🙂 Ward Pound Ridge is in full early fall beauty!

For those returning please start looking for subjects that inspire you and bring them to class. For new students just bring your supplies for drawing as seen on the supply list.  Don’t forget we are having classes in the afternoons from 1-4pm on Wednesday and Thursday and 10-1pm on Saturdays. Classes will be held in the Nature Museum. When you arrive at the gate just let them know you are in the class so you can enter without a park fee.

Hope everyone had a great summer….see you soon!
