Monday looks like a lovely sunny day however even though it will be over freezing  it’s still pretty cold.  It’s still wise  to bundle up!  We can also sketch inside.  There are lovely floor to ceiling windows with outside bird feeders, and wildlife displays indoors.

Here is a link to Google Map for directions: http://goo.gl/maps/aGRHM

SUGGESTIONS ON WHAT TO BRING

For your personal comfort:
Dress in layers.

For the sake of art:
Camera
folding chair
Plein Air easel
Plein air pochade box
Drawing board

Your drawing supplies can be as little as a pencil, pad and sharpener or as elaborate as a full french easel box of oils and canvases. If you are just starting out, we suggest starting small.

I don’t know if we can sketch inside until we get there, so don’t count on being able to do that. If there are school tours we will be underfoot as they do their scavenger hunts inside the nature centre.

If we are able to sketch indoors there are some restrictions. There can be no “trip hazards.” Therefore, no easels or equipment on the floor. You can bring in a chair to sit on. They do have a sitting area that looks out at bird feeders, a pond, and the woods.

If you are painting inside the Nature Centre, we suggest that you treat this as a sketching opportunity rather than a full fledged painting event. Bring sketchbooks, coloured pencils, watercolour pencils, and anything that you can safely confine to your lap.

Of course, if you wish to work outside you may bring all your gear. The washrooms are available.

We are looking forward to seeing you Monday.
