Watercolor Workshop – “Butterflies of the Sanctuary”

July 11 @ 10:00 am - July 13 @ 12:00 pm

July 11, July 12 & July 13 (rain date – July 14)
10:00am – 12:00pm
$125 for all three classes
Class limited to 12 adult students


Sometimes referred to as “winged rainbows”, butterflies have always captured the heart with their graceful beauty and stunning colors. Now, you can re-create their natural splendor, celebrating these gorgeous creatures in your own unique and inspiring way through the sanctuary’s first ever watercolor workshop. Join beloved artist, ShawnaLee, for an immersive experience in drawing and painting the butterflies of the sanctuary. No experience necessary as each step of the process will be explained and demonstrated. Classes will be held outdoors under a spacious tent with comfortable seating…right alongside the butterflies! By the end of the three-day program, you’ll “fly” away with several practice studies and your own personal painting.


Art supplies will be provided for use during workshop sessions. As a courtesy, an art supply list will be sent to all participants who may want to purchase their own brushes or supplies to foster their new hobby.
