Marcela had a nice and peaceful day sketching in the beautiful Nehrling Gardens. It was a bit cloudy, but the rain was still miles away. Only few gardeners shared the space with her as she sat at a picnic table and did 2 small sketches. Check back for more locations and join us in the new year!
The Orlando Science Center on January 26 was a resounding success for Central Florida Watercolor Society. CFWS artists were able to interact with many different age levels—from eight to eighty. The facilities were especially nice and the OSC staff was well prepared for us. I think we would all agree that comments from the staff, observers and, particularly the participants, were very positive. Since all three of our sessions were full—and we’ve been invited back—OSC is obviously a great venue for future public interaction.
It was another fun and educational day at our Backyard Biodiversity Day Plein Air/Pop Up in the lovely Mead Botanical Garden, on October 20. We had 27 audience surveys filled out by folks who came from Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties. Most of our ratings were 10 out of 10! The comments were very positive, some examples are – “Loved the interactive painting.” “Wonderful experience! Haven’t watercolored in a long time!” “love the ability to have my child participate in a relaxed setting” “My 7 year old daughter loved painting and learning!”
Karen, Mary, Diana and Terri thank all the families who stopped by our tables and learned about painting the native plants and animals of Florida. Many purchased native plants, and took them home to help feed pollinators and birds.
Our next Plein Air/Pop Up is December 21 at the Mt. Dora Center for the Arts. We will be teaching from 1 – 4 in the gallery . Stop by and join in the fun!
It was a fun and educational day at our Mennello Plein Air/Pop Up by the lake on Saturday. We had a record 33 audience surveys filled out by folks who came from Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Polk counties. Most of our ratings were 10 out of 10! The comments were very positive, some examples are – “I love how limitless art can be.” “I learned different techniques for my artwork.” “Love to learn.” “It was so relaxing-made my day! Instructor was fabulous!”
Faye, Mary and Terri thank all the families who stopped by our tables and shared a gorgeous day out in the sculpture garden.
Our next Plein Air Pop Up is October 20 at Mead Garden. We will be involved in the Backyard Biodiversity Day. Stop by and join in the fun!
