Art and Ecology:  An Evening to Raise Ecological Awareness

Join me during this special event that combines art and science to raise awareness about ecological issues.  Attendees will get a chance to showcase their own art work and observe, discuss and appreciate the art work of others with the goal of raising awareness of ecological and environmental issues through art and learn from each other through dialogue & conversation.

Debbie Clemens from Brookfield Zoo will join us as a guest speaker and talk to us about the dangers of palm oil to orangutans, rainforests, and the balance of ecosystems in general.

Saturday, September 23rd, 6:00 - 9:00pm
Whole Foods, 1550 N Kingsbury St, 2nd Floor

Portrait Drawing Class

I am thrilled to be teaching two upcoming portrait drawing workshops at Elephant Room Gallery!  This portrait workshop is geared toward beginner and intermediate artists who are interested in learning more about how to draw portraits. This class will teach basic facial proportions and will focus on giving students practice drawing the human face. The class will culminate in a finished portrait. The instructor will provide a combination of group instruction, as well as one-on-one guidance to help students gain confidence while drawing portraits. 

Tickets are $40 and all supplies will be provided to students. Space is limited to just 6 students per class, so RSVP soon.

Sunday, October 15th from 2pm to 5pm
