Friday, April 26th - Plein Air Drawing with Friendly Goats and Chickens

This special plein air session is geared towards artists who want a challenge and love goats. We will start the session with a goat walk around the local bogs to give artists a deep sense of their personalities, then we will set up and draw or paint. The goats may pose on their roof or watch the artist as intently as the artist is watching them. Full event details >>
