Members of the Nature Artists’ Guild are invited to join their fellow artists on a ride on The Morton Arboretum’s Acorn Express the morning of Wednesday, October 30, 2019 (exact time to be determined).
This “one-hour ride winds you through the Arboretum’s woodlands, wetlands, and prairie while listening to a narrated tour.” – mortonarb.org. While the tour is not considered a paint-out, determined artists could certainly take photos, do a few thumbnail sketches, or jot down some color notes. Of course, there is also the option of just sitting back and enjoying the wonderful sights, scents, and sounds of nature in autumn.
The Nature Artists’ Guild will cover the cost of the tour for any interested members. Guests are welcome, but will be responsible for obtaining their own tickets. Interested Guild members should contact Linn Eldred to reserve a seat on the tram. Linn’s contact information can be found in the Nature Artists’ Guild Yearbook. Linn will instruct participants of the exact time of the tour and the meeting spot as soon as those details are finalized, and will communicate any last minute weather-related plan changes if necessary.
