Drawing and Painting Athena the Barred Owl

August 19, 2017 - 12:00pm to 4:30pm
Wildlife Center of Virginia, Waynesboro, VA

7/10 update: This workshop is now full! You may still email Amy to sign up to be on the waiting list. 

Come join us for a special painting workshop featuring Athena the Barred Owl as our model!   The workshop will begin with a short presentation from Wildlife Center staff on Athena and her role as an education animal, then students will work with artist Amy Shawley 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 Athena present to draw and paint her from life and we will also provide photographs of her to use during the remainder of our painting time.

After a short snack/lunch break, workshop attendees will be given a tour of the wildlife center.

The workshop is open to only to adults 18 and over (no children) with all levels of art experience and all workshop-use materials including paints, pencils, palettes, brushes, and surfaces will be provided!   Please bring a sack lunch/snacks (if desired), a camera if you wish to take photos, and note-taking supplies. Please wear clothes you don't mind getting paint on or bring an apron.
