John C Campbell Folk School Welcomes Spring

The beautiful pastoral setting at John C Campbell Folk School has always inspired many outdoor activities. The rapidly greening landscape and blooming flowers are joyously brightening the campus. Come enjoy the spring sunshine and fresh mountain air during a springtime Folk School class.

Be inspired by spring flowers in Illustrating Spring Blooms with Redenta SopranoWhat sight is more welcoming than the first bright flowers of spring? Celebrate this season of rebirth in beautiful mountain surroundings while gaining an introduction to the fundamentals of traditional botanical illustration. After careful observation of plant anatomy, subjects will be drawn in pencil first, then painted in layers of watercolor in a foolproof application. Basic drawing and watercolor experience helpful, but not necessary.

Embrace the Appalachian Spring in Watercolor with Annie Pais. Watercolor has a magical life and spirit all its own. Come enjoy springtime on a lovely campus, sketching and painting in watercolor while realizing your own creative process. Immerse yourselves in the creative energy of the season and look to the surrounding environs for our subject matter and inspiration. Open to students of all experience levels.
