Our new Art & Animals series isn’t just for the kids! We hope the adults will enjoy this awesome opportunity to practice fundamental watercolor techniques by sketching and painting a selection of subjects from around Dalby Farm, with long time farm friend & incredible local artist, Tara Connaughton.
Class participants will learn how to observe and draw for painting, and then how to layer washes of color to bring their paintings to life. Come for one class or all to spark your creativity and celebrate nature while developing a new skill in a fun and relaxed environment! Whether you are brand new to watercolor or have some prior painting experience, all levels are welcome.
