Each Spring, a group of intrepid explorers make their yearly trek through forests, jungles and tundra in search of bears, lions, and leopards, armed only with sketchbooks, pencils, erasers, brushes and paint.
On Friday, March 10, 2017, members of the Nature Artists’ Guild are invited to attend the annual paint-out at the Jurica-Suchy Nature Museum at Benedictine University in Lisle, IL, between the hours of 1 and 4 pm. Since classes will be in session during this paint-out, interested members are encouraged to RSVP to Jane Kellenberger, who can assist with parking directions and distribute parking passes. Jane’s contact information can be found in the Nature Artists’ Guild Yearbook. Please click on this link for driving directions and a campus map.
With over 3500 specimens currently on display, the award-winning Jurica-Suchy Nature Museum offers artists a rare opportunity to get a close-up look at some of the world’s most fascinating creatures.
