This class is for anyone looking to try something new, increase their mindfulness, relax and connect to the outdoors. You'll use watercolor pencils on paper to discover the beauty in some of the park's smaller details. Think lichens, mosses, spring wildflowers, or whatever inspires you.

The group will meet, chat and test-out watercolor pencils before stepping onto short trails and putting details onto paper. The aim of this class is not to produce frameable art, but to become absorbed in the smaller details of nature while quieting the mind and sparking your creativity. The process is more important than the product. More time will be spent experimenting with materials than on instruction. All materials will be provided for the day. Space is limited to twelve, please email the naturalist at jenni.webster@state.mn.us to reserve a spot in this free class.

This class will take place entirely outdoors.

The “Ish-y” part is this: What you create will be tree-ish, branch-ish, landscape-ish, sunrise-ish, sunset-ish…you get the idea.

Inspiration for each class will vary each week. We are not going for detail here but tapping into our own intuitive self-expression by using simple strokes, blending and shading, creating an idea of what we see. In simple terms – I am providing the space, supplies and guidance in which you can explore and connect to your inner artist.

Rules of the class:

No judgements, no competition, and no expectations.

Barbie (Babs) Luepke will serve as your Art Guide.

This class will be held on occasional Wednesdays.

The “Ish-y” part is this: What you create will be tree-ish, branch-ish, landscape-ish, sunrise-ish, sunset-ish…you get the idea.

Inspiration for each class will vary each week. We are not going for detail here but tapping into our own intuitive self-expression by using simple strokes, blending and shading, creating an idea of what we see. In simple terms – I am providing the space, supplies and guidance in which you can explore and connect to your inner artist.

Rules of the class:

No judgements, no competition, and no expectations.

Barbie (Babs) Luepke will serve as your Art Guide.

This class will be held on occasional Wednesdays.
