The Popular “Nature Artist Trio” is Back, Thursday, August 4, 2016

No, it’s not a new musical group!  Even better, each year the Nature Artists’ Guild invites three artist members to share their tips, techniques, materials and inspirations in a fun, informal and informative presentation.  The program will be held at the Thornhill Education Center, The Morton Arboretum, on August 4, 2016 from 7 until 9 pm.  

This year, all three artists will be working on or with paper, but in interesting new ways.  

Carol Cooley will share her methods for using watercolor and the “shinkolei” process to add new elements to her wonderful block prints.

Sharon Malec uses her hand-made silk papers to create shimmering fabric art.

Susan Bartlett’s stunning collages are made with paper that she has hand-painted.

Members, non-members, visitors, friends, family – all are welcome at this popular program!  Both the program and parking are free-of-charge.  Non-members of The Morton Arboretum should let the gate attendant know that they are there for the Nature Artists’ Guild program and they will be directed to Thornhill.

  1. Will this event be taped so that others can later view it? I will not be able to attend but very much interested in learning more about the above artists’ works and techniques. Especially interested in learning more about Carol Cooley’s work.

    • Hi, I don’t know of any plans to record the event, but that is a great idea! If it is recorded, we will let you know. Carol Cooley is not only a wonderful artist but a warm and sharing person. I am sure she would be glad to answer any questions you have about her artwork and methods if you happen to see her at a program or paint-out.
