Art, art, art and chickens 🐓

The first week of classes have begun….botanical art in the classroom, journals and watercolors out in the summer sun and plein air painting down by the steam at Ward Pound Ridge Reserve 🙂

Looking forward to journaling chickens 🐓 at Betsy’s house this Thursday! Plein air class will return to Ward Pound Ridge early Saturday morning to continue painting the lovely stream 🙂

Looking forward to lots of painting this summer taking my paints out to all our lovely surrounding open land spaces 🙂

Summer classes begin this week 🌸☀️🌿

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!

Any questions please email me at lauragould@mac.com

Get ready!!!!! :0)

Classes start next week! Time to start thinking of your Fall subjects 🙂 What do want to see in front of you on your drawing table…small subjects, large subjects, colorful subjects, leaves, grasses, pods, or something from the farmers market.  Take the time to be aware of what’s around you and what catches your eye….apples, crabapples, magnolia pods….it’s all around you :O)

Check schedules and times in the “Classes” section and remember we are back at Ward Pound Ridge Reserve ❤️ See you next week!
