Arts in Nature

Member artists meet outdoors all summer long on the beautiful grounds of Rodman Hall Art Centre to explore arts and nature in community. This program runs Monday’s 1-3 pm for the following dates: June 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th; July 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th; August 13th, 20th, 27th.

Each week we will explore a different art medium or discipline (music, creative writing, watercolour, sketching, charcoal etc.) These classes are designed for playful discovery and expression. We call these classes “Make and Takes!” No art showcase in mind this summer, just easy outdoor art making with a great group of people.

Check out this blog post for weekly updates!
