Open Spaces Visual Art Workshop with Megan Gallant: Nature Up-Close
Lakeside Nature Center
Multimedia artist, Megan Gallant, will draw your observation to the details of color and form in the natural world and guide you to create your own artwork with materials from nature. Participants will make use of the beautiful setting of Lakeside Nature Center's studio, gathering sights and materials from the garden and woods and creating a multimedia work while enjoying relaxing views from the studio windows.
This workshop will focus your senses on nature's details. It is inspired by the work of Open Spaces artist, Karen McCoy, who offers her Sound and Sight Walk at 3:30 PM, just steps away! You can register for Ms. McCoy's 3:30 PM Walk on the Open Spaces website! Registration is separate.
