Painting Mushrooms: Woodland Jewels of the Forest
September 24, 25 and 26, 2015
Th, F and Sa from 10 AM to 3:30 PM, 3 sessions
Mt. Cuba Center, 3120 Barley Mill Road, Hockessin, DE 19707
Much of the mystery and intrigue surrounding mushrooms stems from the tiny kingdom on the forest floor that they inhabit. Join Margaret Saylor for a three-day workshop where you will examine different types of fungi and mushrooms, then sketch, compose, and build a unique and accurate painting. Including secondary elements such as spiky grasses, brittle leaves, satiny acorns, or even woodland critters adds interest to your composition while teaching the viewer more about the habitat of the particular mushroom the artist has chosen to depict. Concepts will be taught through demonstrations and individual instruction. All levels of ability are welcome!
