Have you ever felt compelled to express your inner artist, but feel as though you’re lacking the knowledge you need to create a masterpiece? The Wild Center recently announced that it will be hosting adult beginner art classes this summer to help people like you learn techniques in areas from watercolor and pastels to mixed media and printmaking.
The series has been titled “Art in the Park,” and classes will be held on Mondays from 10am until 1pm from July 13 – August 31. Each week will focus on a different style of art, with some styles spanning more than one week.
