Drawing & Painting Verlon the American Kestrel

April 15, 2018 - 12:00pm to 4:30pm
Wildlife Center of Virginia, Waynesboro, VA

Come join us on April 15 for a special painting workshop featuring Verlon the American Kestrel as our model!   The workshop will begin with a short presentation from Wildlife Center staff on Verlon 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 Verlon 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.  

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

The workshop is open only to adults 18 and older (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.
