The classes will be taught by Marka Kroeger and are for beginning and intermediate adults (ages 14 and older). Kroeger will introduce the elements and principles of design, simple perspective, and basic compositional patterns to form the ground work for artists to gain confidence and paint freely.
The cost for art classes is $40.00 per person for both Saturday sessions. Pre-registration is required and participants should bring a sack lunch and a drink. A material list will be given at registration.
For more information about Basic Design or to pre-register for the classes, call the park at (270) 827-1893.
Along the banks of the Ohio River, the John James Audubon State Park in Henderson Kentucky is home to the world’s largest collection of Audubon artifacts. The museum at the park interprets Audubon’s life through his art and personal memorabilia.
John James Audubon arrived in Henderson in 1810 and lived in there for nine years, longer than anywhere else in the United States. It was while living in Kentucky that Audubon developed his artistic technique that would eventually secure his prominence as a wildlife artist.
The Nature Center comprises three areas: a wildlife Observation Room; the Discovery Center with hands-on exhibits; and the Learning Center where the park naturalist and art educator conduct environmental and art programs and an excellent place to learn about art.
Besides the museum, facilities at the park include cottages, golf, camping, fishing, hiking trails, and picnic shelters.
John James Audubon State Park is just about 125 miles from Metro Louisville via scenic US-60. (For detailed directions, consult www.maps.google.com).
