Birds of Prey Art Class  Jonathan Wilde

Enjoy a day of art lessons in a natural and creative atmosphere instructed by wildlife artist Jon Wilde. Students will have the opportunity to draw or paint two of Hoo's Woods education raptors; Oakley a Spectacled Owl and Catelyn a Peregrine Falcon. The focus of this workshop will be as much about understanding how feathers "fit" a bird as well as ways to realistically portray these birds. Students are encouraged to bring their medium of choice; drawing (graphite, colored pencil, charcoal, pastel) or painting (acrylic, oil, watercolor), appropriate drawing papers, or canvas and necessary accompanying supplies as preferred.

Jon Wilde is a native of Southern Wisconsin and has been painting birds full time for 47 years. For 43 of those years he has been a licensed falconer. His work is exhibited in some of Wisconsin's best gallery's and is in numerous public and private collections.

The day will also include a program presented by Dianne Moller, director of Hoo's Woods. Participants will learn about their natural history, breeding, habitat and behaviors.  Sat. Aug 5, 10 - 3:30  $150.

***Proceeds to benefit the care of our education birds.***

Afternoon & Evening Light: Plein Air in Oils  Jan Norsetter

Experience oil painting in the mid-afternoon and early evening light, take note of the lights' effect on your work. Join Jan for this two day plein air class, she has planned a couple longer demos that will provide the opportunity to watch both the preliminary stages and her further development of the paintings. Share in the discussions of subject matter, composition, light, hard and soft edges, editing, and color.  Anticipate working on at least 2 smallish (5x7", 6x8", 8x10", 9x12") paintings per day - as we will be in afternoon/evening light and the lighting can change substantially, unless it is completely overcast. Sat Aug 19 & Sun Aug 20,  2 p.m. - 8 p.m.  $230
