Event Description

Beginners welcome! If you have never picked up a paintbrush, this workshop is for you. If you are a painter, come and learn some new skills and paint in this beautiful desert oasis. A day-long oil painting workshop with artist-naturalist Laura Cunningham, author of A State of Change: Forgotten Landscapes of California (Heyday:2010), where students learn about nature and landscape painting. All materials provided: easels and paint boxes will be set up in the outdoor patio of the visitor center in the morning, and Laura will show students various materials and methods for plein air painting outside. Or bring your own painting materials. Students will also hear an introduction about the refuge, wildlife, rare species, and conservation biology by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service staff at Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge. Crystal Springs, wetlands, ash trees and screwbean mesquite groves, and the surrounding limestone mountains present amazing views and subjects to paint and sketch. Bring your binoculars for birding! Picnic lunches will be provided at noon (bring your own snacks and drinks too), and afterwards Laura will demonstrate how to start a landscape painting along one of the many easy and beautiful trails near the visitor center. Students will be provided with materials to paint their own landscape for the afternoon in the shade of trail pull-outs and mesquite groves. Laura will also discuss the various plants, wildlife, and natural history of the area.

The art workshop will occur on September 16, 2017, from 10 AM to 3 PM in the refuge new visitor center patio and out on the boardwalks. The visitor center is next to a large parking lot with easy access. Don't miss this opportunity to experience the refuge from a unique perspective, with both art and science emphasized.
