The annual paint-out for members of the Nature Artists’ Guild at the Jurica-Suchy Nature Museum at Benedictine University in Lisle, IL, will take place on the morning of Tuesday, March 20, 2018 from 9 am until noon.
The museum claims “over 10,000 specimens, ranging from a tiny aphid to a whale skeleton”, and attendees can request specific specimens from storage by contacting Jane Kellenberger by Monday, March 12, 2018. Please click on this link to the museum’s online specimen catalog to search. Jane’s contact information can be found in the Nature Artists’ Guild Yearbook.
Members are encouraged to let Jane know if they plan to attend, but since there is plenty of room for all of our artists, drop-ins or late-comers are welcome! There is some seating available, but participants can bring a small stool or chair if they prefer. Please click on this link for directions to Benedictine University and for maps of the campus. The museum is located on the second floor of the Michael and Kay Birck Hall of Science.
