Creating Connections | Drawings from the Garden

8 Sessions: Sundays, September 15, 22, 29, October 6, 13, 20, 27 November 3

The Lotus Pond, Gazebo, and River Birch Alee are just a few, of the many, distinct locations at Grounds for Sculpture. Find a setting that speaks to your interests and explore the possibilities of bringing your location to life on paper using mixed media. Drawing will be the foundation to build upon with watercolor and/or collage playing supporting roles. Designed for older adults, students will learn how to simplify forms and textures in nature while learning a variety of drawing techniques. All levels of experience welcomed. Admission to GFS is included, so feel free to enjoy the grounds!

Instructor: Shawn Allen-Dela Rosa is a Teaching Artist and believes all people have an inherent desire to make something they care about, and that the motivation to do so can often be found in a supportive group setting. For over twenty-five years, she has created environments for learning that support a fundamental action of art, creating personal connections inspired by the people and places that surround us. Shawn has worked extensively in Art and Healthcare and taught classes for Michener Museum, The Delaware Valley Arts Institute, Grounds for Sculpture and Chandler Hall Health Services. Her work has been shown in several juried exhibitions, among them Phillips Mill Gallery in New Hope and the Fleisher Art Memorial in Philadelphia.
