Join local environmental artist Sarah Wilson for this three-session class, where we’ll make beautiful works of outdoor art using materials sourced from nature. Learn to see the natural world and all its shapes, colors, properties, and patterns in a new way as you use its bounty to create your masterpiece — a relaxing, peaceful, mindful, and fun way to spend time! Once your creations are complete, you can enjoy them and then walk away to let them blend back into nature (…sometimes quite quickly if it’s a windy day!) You’ll learn basic techniques to create both flat and 3D designs, as well as artwork that can dance in the wind. Attendees will work on their own and in small groups; perhaps we’ll even make one large group creation at the end.

This group meets Wednesdays, September 27, from 3 to 4 p.m., and October 4 & 11, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. at the Harris Center.

Cost: $80 for Harris Center supporters / $100 for all others.

Space is limited, and registration is required. For questions about registration, please contact Audrey Dunn. For other questions, including questions about accessibility, contact Susie Spikol.

Sarah Wilson has been artsy her whole life, but it wasn’t until she completed her master’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies at Antioch University New England six years ago that she discovered “Environmental Art.” Since then, she has been making art outdoors in all four seasons, using natural materials. This new form of art has changed her life for the better. She loves sharing her skills and ever-evolving knowledge of the practice with others.
