Hike and Draw
6:30 PM- 7:30 PM
Relax and de-stress on four summer evenings with our new program partner The Art Students League. Focusing in on nature and transferring it to paper can be a calming and meditative process. Bring a bottle of water and a light-weight portable chair to the nature center. From there we will venture out with artists Pedro Ramirez and Amy Digi to beautiful sights worth feasting your eyes on. This event repeats every week on Friday between 7/22/16 and 8/12/16.
