“I know a bank where the wild thyme blows, 

Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows...” 

-from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream

See professional artists of various mediums simultaneously at work on the theme “A Midsummer Nest’s Dream,” and join in the magic and whimsy by creating your own plein air artwork. All ages welcome. Supplies are limited; online registration required.

Painting from life – “en plein air” – is both a challenging and rewarding way to depict the natural world. Join local artist Loretta Foyle for a live outdoor workshop in pastels for beginning and intermediate experience levels. Light snacks, art supplies and an easel will be provided to participants, but please bring along your own chair, sun protection, and water. We will meet at East Lake's tennis courts before journeying as a group to our location promptly at 10am. Appropriate for adults. Space is limited; online registration required. Please email mmayo@anythinklibraries.org with questions.
