Tonight’s art piece is about the magic of fireflies. The instructors make everyone attending feel like they’re at home creating a one of a kind art piece and guide attendees through the entire process of the painting. All materials are provided. The cost is $35 for a 16×20 canvas and $20 for a kids version on an 11×14 canvas. Please call the nature center at 304-259-5511 to reserve your spot!.
All ages are welcome at any skill level. The art room will be in the Harr Center at Blackwater Falls Lodge beginning at 6:00 p.m. This activity is open to the public, overnight guests at the park or attending art in the park only, welcome!
The final art piece is a night scene of shadowy moonlight, mountains, vegetation, and the flashing signals of fireflies also known as lightning bugs.
A bonus to the Art in the Park evening is meeting the park naturalist during the art program and learning a bit about fireflies. They are magical with their different flashes of light and communication. This program is also at Blackwater Falls Lodge.
The art in the park painting workshop can accommodate up to 30 individuals. Advance reservation to enjoy ‘Art in the Park’ evening is highly encouraged and can be made by calling 304-259-5211, please leave a name and number to call if we’re with visitors or leading a hike and can’t take your call.
