Nature Appreciation Through Art Workshop
Send to friend
The Elders Council for Parks in B.C. Society is offering eleven free nature programs for seniors that incorporate natural and cultural history and the arts. For beginners or experienced artists. Bring your own supplies if you have them, otherwise supplies will be provided. REGISTRATION REQUIRED due to limited space.
“We will start with an inspirational walk through the forest, gathering impressions of the colours, shapes and smells. In tune with this living environment, discussing what most catches our eye, how to simplify what we see, what we want to show. The freshness of an artistic work completed “in the moment” will be a source of memories and hopefully, more art work in the future! “
