Depict the tender beauty of “things that hide in the wild” in juicy watercolor while you connect your appreciation of nature with your passion for art. On Saturday, April 20, Rena Browuer, renowned watercolorist and nature enthusiast, will guide you in painting poignant parts of nature that are tucked away in trees, under rocks and water, or buried in foliage. The workshop is 9-4 at the Opera House Gallery of Contemporary Art in Delphi, Indiana. 

Optionally, on Wednesday, April 18, prepare yourself to paint with Rena by taking an interpretive walk with her and Tippecanoe County Naturalist Mary Cutler through areas of Fall Creek Gorge, as part of the Wednesdays in the Wild program.
Bring a sketchbook and collect ideas!
Fall Creek Gorge is newly acquired by Niches Land Trust from the Nature Conservancy and is currently closed to the public. It is one of the most scenic areas in west central Indiana with its steep walled canyons, tumbling waters, and “potholes” — large, circular openings in the rock that form the bed of the canyon. Mary Cutler will point out the plant and animal life forms that hide in this lovely tract of wilderness. The walk is free but you must register. To sign up, go to Facebook Wednesdays in the Wild, https://www.facebook.com/WednesdaysInTheWild/.
