Art in the Park: Natural Compositions with Anne Hughes ←
- This event has passed.
Join The Wild Center this summer to awaken your talents in celebration of art and nature in the Adirondacks. Monday mornings in July and August, come explore the natural world with experienced Adirondack artists. In each three-hour class you will grow your art skills and learn new techniques in areas such as watercolor, pastels, and mixed media. Every week features a different focus and offers new skills, so sign up for one or more. Museum admission is not included. Space is limited to twelve people per class, so please register soon. Basic materials are included.
In this course, participants will work with natural materials to create a unique composition. You will leave with a set of 8 blank notecards with envelopes. We will “decorate” the fronts of the cards with birch bark, ferns, fiddleheads and a myriad of wild game bird feathers, leaves, etc. Natural Compositions.
Anne Hughes has spent every summer of her life just north of Paul Smiths in the Adirondacks. Her passion for all things natural – and the desire to “create” using nature’s treasures as her medium – stemmed from countless hours spent in the woods and walking along the roadsides. She has mastered the art of preservation, and, with a keen eye for detail, has developed a truly unique style of art. In June of 2015, Anne moved to Paul Smiths, the tiny community she now calls her home. With no formal art training, Anne creates unique compositions using ordinary commonplace things found in nature.
