Come join us for a special painting workshop featuring Buttercup the Black Vulture as our model!   The workshop will begin with a short presentation from Wildlife Center staff on Buttercup and his role as an education animal, then students will work with artist Amy Shawley Paquette to discover the basics of watercolor and illustration as well as learn fun and easy ideas for painting birds.  We will have three 20 minute sessions with Buttercup present to draw and paint him from life and we will also provide photographs of him to use during the remainder of our painting time.
