Art in the Park: Plein Air Sunflowers

September 2, 2021

3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Waterville Creates

Head of Falls

RESCHEDULED to Thursday, September 2

To finish our Summer Art Journals and our Art in the Park programs, we will create plein air watercolor paintings of the sunflowers in bloom and the Two Cent Bridge. Learn simple ways to add watercolor to a sketchbook and how to create art outdoors with ease.

As part of its Art in the Park program, Waterville Creates is joining forces with the Waterville Public Library and the Colby College Museum of Art to create one-of-a-kind summer art journals in collaboration with a free summer reading series. Program guests will include artists, musicians, live cats, teachers, and scientists.

Every Thursday, we’ll create new pages to add to the summer art journals. Journals can be brought back each week, resulting in a fun and distinctive nature journal that documents your entire summer. Watch a “how to” demonstration of each project, then make your own creation at Head of Falls, a large, open, green space located in downtown Waterville adjacent to the historic Kennebec River.

In addition, each week a pre-selected book will be read aloud to participants as they construct and design their art journals. Bring a blanket or chair to get comfortable while listening and creating content for your journal. This program is free and open to all ages and levels of experience.

We will reschedule or cancel in the event of rain.
