Drawing and Painting with Sticks: Birds, Trees and Other Twiggy Things

Nature itself becomes the instruments used to create masterpieces in artist Laurie Wigham’s exhibit: Drawing and Painting with Sticks: Birds, Tress and Other Twiggy Things. The exhibit runs June 15-Aug. 14 in Lindsay’s upstairs Buckeye Room. 13346427_1247402171938458_5951991596395896319_n

The lively lines made by sticks dipped in vibrant watercolors or dark ink can transform into bird wings,  branches and grasses, allowing the viewer to explore the possibilities in the wild as well as cities.

An artist reception for Wigham will be held Sunday June 19 from 2 to 4 p.m. and is the kick-off to Lindsay’s summer adult speaker series: Nature Speak. Light refreshments will be provided.

Wigham has organized a sketch group meet-up through SF Sketchers, who will come to Lindsay June 19, and sketch the animals.

Wigham will also offer two workshops:
June 21: Drawing Birds–Intensive Bird Study, a three hour workshop. Click here to sign-up.

Aug. 18: Drawing Trees With Sticks, a two-hour workshop designed for families to experience together. Click here to sign-up.
