Drawing from Nature

Join us for a fun, interactive lunchtime drawing experience! Arif Khan, the Clay Center's Mary Price Ratrie Curator of Art, will introduce our new nature themed exhibit, Every Living Thing. Then you can try your hand at drawing from some of the pieces or from natural objects provided. Drawing skills are not necessary, just a sense of adventure. Supplies provided.
Art and the Garden
With Megan Schultz
Wednesday, May 14, 12:15, Art Gallery
Join us as Ms. Schultz discusses the history of artists using the natural world symbolically and as inspiration. She will highlight art works that feature plants, flowers, and landscape as their central subject matter and look at why artists choose these subjects to represent larger concepts such as life and death.
