Join Shoreview, MN artist and naturalist Tammy Nara and Watermark partner Neilson Spearhead Center for this four-hour drawing, painting, and hiking class. Students will learn about watercolor techniques, color theory, drawing from life, as well as the flora and fauna seen during their hike. Students will also create drawings and paintings in response to what they experienced in nature that day. Neilson Spearhead Center is a 466 acre preserve located 11 miles southwest of Bemidji.
Three age-appropriate options are available: adults ages 15 and up, grades 3rd through 8th, and an adult/child combination (age 7 and up). Students will need to pack a snack, sunscreen, and insect repellent. Water will be provided. The class will meet at the Nielson Spearhead Center.
Tammy Nara is a hiking artist and art teacher based in Shoreview, Minnesota. She enjoys using pen, watercolor, and acrylic to create responses to the natural world. “Experiencing and protecting the natural world is important. Creating art and connecting with other humans also enriches our lives in important ways. Let’s make time for what is important.”
The class fee for each option is $47 for Watermark members and $50 for nonmembers. An additional materials fee of $22 will be paid directly to the instructor for supplies. More information and registration at watermarkartcenter.org/product/paint-and-hike-experience-adults/
