NCFL hosts “Exploring Home” sketching class

NORTH CHATHAM–North Chatham Free Library (NCFL), 4287 Route 203, announces “Exploring Home – Sketching Nature Through the Seasons” on Sunday, March 10 at 3 p.m.

Enjoy the often-overlooked beauty and wonder of nature, as captured by artist and educator Jean Mackay, as she presents the diversity of the four seasons through sketches and watercolors. Mackay will share her creative process and artistic journey while inviting participants to enjoy the ordinary, yet extraordinary, marvels she has encountered close to home.

For more than 25 years, Mackay has been exploring and sketching nature – working in all kinds of settings ranging from tide pools to farm fields to her own backyard. She is the author/illustrator of “The Nature Explorer’s Sketchbook” (2020). She teaches online and in-person classes and offers immersive workshops nationally.

This project is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrant Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered in Columbia County by CREATE Council on the Arts.
