Accomplished wildlife artist Melody Asbury is offering art classes at Flanders Nature Center & Land Trust with the focus on learning to paint the animal of a person’s choice including pets, wildlife or farm animals. Students will have the opportunity to try sketching live animals using Flanders own animals. There will be instruction and individual guidance on basic structure and gesture as well as how to keep an ongoing sketchbook.
All levels of students are welcome and any medium can be used. Participants are asked to bring a sketchbook, pencils, a good reference photograph and their own art supplies.
A walk to Flanders’ barnyard and/or small live animals brought to the studio will serve as further inspiration.
The 4 class series will begin on Wednesday August 3 with classes also held on the following Wednesdays of August 10, 17, and 24. All classes will be held from 7 to 9 PM in the historic Van Vleck Studio on the corner of Flanders Road and Church Hill Road in Woodbury.
The cost for the series is $100 for members or $150 for non-members. Preregistration is required. Those interested may register online at www.flandersnaturecenter.org or call 203-263-3711, ext. 10, for more information. For more area information www.litchfieldhills.com
