The planning meeting for the 2014 Nature Artists’ Guild’s contribution to The Morton Arboretum’s annual Scarecrow Trail went very well, with all kinds of creative ideas bouncing around. The winning idea is to construct not an actual scarecrow, but a portrait of a scarecrow, in a very recognizable pose!
Members of the Nature Artists’ Guild are invited to show up to Room A of Thornhill, next Saturday morning, September 13, 2014, between 9 am and noon to help with the construction. Most of the work will involve painting with acrylics, so wear some old clothes and bring your old tubes or jars of acrylic paint and large brushes if you have them. If you don’t have any, please come anyway, as there will surely be extra supplies.
If you have any questions or want more details about this fun project, please contact Patty Koenigsaecker. Members will find Patty’s contact information in their Yearbook.
You can view some of our previous scarecrows (such as Betty Birdwatcher, Patty Painter, Suzy Sketcher) by typing in the word “scarecrow” in the Search box in the right column of this blog.
