Art classes for children age 6 to 14 will be held on August 12, 19 and 26th at the Pitney Meadows Community Gardens starting at 9 a.m.
On August 12 and 26, children will be able to draw and paint flowers and bugs in the garden under the guidance of two local artists Martel Catalano and Nancy Hicks who are also gardeners in the community gardens.
On August 19th, Saratoga Springs artist and retired teacher Judy Brunner will lead a class on creating huge sunflowers out of paper. They are gorgeous. Children will be able to enter the sunflower house and see how the walls are growing.
Parents are expected to stay during the art classes which will run an hour, and everyone is welcome to remain in the garden after the class to complete their art work or just enjoy the surrounding beauty. Supplies will be provided, but if you would like to bring your own, that’s fine too.
The art created can be entered in the Sept. 16th art show in the Community Gardens.
The show will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Paintings, drawings and photographs are all eligible. To register for the classes or enter the art show contact Natalie Walsh at firstname.lastname@example.org
Class size is limited so early registration is advised.
Adults and children are welcome to come draw, paint or take photographs in the garden anytime from dawn to dusk.
The garden is lovely and the farmland is breathtaking. Sunflowers just started blooming this week and will continue to bloom until fall.
