In this new class, enjoy the opportunity to explore your artistic practice in our scenic classroom spaces. Open studio hours are ideal for creatives who thrive in a relaxed atmosphere of community art making. A Meijer Gardens educator will offer a short demo of the project and be available for questions and guidance throughout. Materials for the monthly project will be provided as well as some other basic drawing materials, easels and sketch boards. Participants should bring any additional materials they are interested in working with.
Draw inspiration from a variety of objects, including a preset still life or plants in vases. A variety of drawing materials, such as colored pencils, pastels, charcoal, and watercolors will be provided. Participants are welcome to bring alternative types of media as well.
