Flowers: Watershed

- $30

Join local artist and ACP instructor Debbie Gwazda in this workshop taking an up-close look at flowers (magnifying glasses and all!). Students will be inspired by the iconic artwork of Georgia O’Keefe, as well as the natural beauty of plant material found at the Watershed. They will learn elements of color theory as they mix acrylic paints to create vibrant hues. Each student will create their own masterpiece as a treasured memento!

This workshop is part of ACP’s Saturday Sampler for kids at the Watershed. Register for one, two, or all three (for the most fun!). Art classes meet in the Watershed Center of Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association. The Watershed Center is the new LEED platinum environmental center of the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association. Located on the Watershed Reserve in Hopewell Township, the center showcases sustainable energy features such as a green roof, geothermal heating and cooling and an innovative wastewater wetland.
