Program Description

Event Details

New Canaan Library is pleased to offer a four-session plein-air watercolor drawing workshop. This series of classes is designed to foster observation and exploration within New Canaan Library’s green space. We will set up our workspace outdoors, among nature, with paper and drawing materials, and draw from the surrounding plant life. Students will learn various watercolor drawing styles and interpretations. One-on-one instructor feedback will be given. Group discussion is highly encouraged, making this an interactive learning experience. All materials will be provided by the library. 

Please note, If it rains, the classes will be held indoors.
