Join Sue St. Germain for an evening of “expressionistic “ art as you try a variety of  art materials to capture your “spirit animal.”  What animal do you admire and relate to?  Why?  Bring a picture of it or browse through library books Sue will display.  You certainly  don’t need to be an experienced artist.  Experiment with a choice of markers, colored pencils, pastels, water color, or watercolor pencils and appropriate art paper  to capture the spirit of your chosen animal.  Sue’s animal spirit is a hummingbird and she will guide you through the session using this as a model.  Time will be allotted for you to jot down your reflections about the animal and your reason for loving it. This is different and should be fun! Please register.
