Member artists meet outdoors on the beautiful grounds of Rodman Hall Art Centre to explore arts and nature in community. This program runs all summer long on Monday’s from 1-3 pm for the following dates: June 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th; July 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th; August 7th, 13th, 20th, 27th. *** We have added a new date Tues, Aug 7th 1-3 pm.
Each week we 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. New members are always welcome to join.
