Take a guided tour of our natural areas and capture the raw beauty of blooming native grasses with a new artistic technique using alcohol inks and masking fluid. With this long-lasting technique and unique medium, you’ll enjoy creating your own fall prairie scene with experienced artist, Andrea Patton, as your artistic guide. Led by Conservation Botanist, Minnette Marr, our class will begin with an insightful guided tour of native grass species found along the Hill Country Trails. Drawing inspiration from our natural areas participants will perfect their skills painting native grasses on both ceramic tile and Nara paper using alcohol inks. Take home two pieces of art, both filled with beautifully blended fall colors and a new skill!
This class is open to both beginners and intermediate artists and nature enthusiasts looking to learn a new technique for painting, ages 16 and up.
