Description: Learn strategies for painting nature’s endless hues in watercolor. Discover how paying attention to these colors can help sharpen your field observation and identification skills. We will practice in our journals using objects from the Lookout Mountain Nature Center collections.

Age Group: All ages. Instruction will be geared for adults, but children who are interested in art are welcome to attend with an adult. Parents, please make sure to monitor your children's energy and interest levels during club outings to ensure that their behavior is conducive to a positive learning environment for everyone. Program will take place indoors.
