Mushroom Walk: Session I

$45

with David Spahr

Calendar Jul 17, 2022 at 1 pm, runs for 1 week

This course will include walking in the woods of Merrymeeting Bay to find edible mushrooms along with detailed descriptions of habitat and structure. David Spahr has collected edible mushrooms for 46 years and is a member of the Maine Mycological Association and the North American Mycological Association. Every walk bears a different bounty depending on the season, the weather and location. The majority of mushrooms found in nature are often not edible, and learning this element is even more important than knowing which ones you can eat. Please bring a notebook and pen, sensible clothing and footwear, water, snack and bug repellant. A basket or bags are optional. Children 8 to 15 are allowed to register only with a parent who is also registered. These hikes can be moderate in difficulty. No discounts.

Exploring the 2nd dimension: A week of drawing, painting, printmaking, and collage

There are so many ways to go about making a drawing or painting. Get ready to draw with an eraser, dip a stick in ink, and layer marks in charcoal and chalk. We’ll go over color-mixing, draw with paint, look at how artists build a painting, and try different underpainting colors. We’ll learn some fun printmaking techniques, and experiment with collage. At times we’ll work from observation, but we’ll also explore working from invention, and abstraction. Join us as we explore the second dimension!

Sessions 1 and 2 will NOT be a repeat of each other. Though the focus for both sessions will remain on exploring the 2nd dimension.

Monday-Thursday, July 18-21, 930AM-230PM + Friday, July 22 930AM -1230PM
