Maria Mariottini will teach The Garden as Inspiration Drawing Class, a 6 week long series that explores forms and textures in the 10,000 square feet of the Wicker Park Garden located in Wicker Park at 1425 N. Damen Avenue. The first session will be an intro and tour of the garden by Doug Wood, the garden coordinator and main designer. Each following session will have a focus to encourage expanded skill in seeing and drawing. The goal after 6 weeks is to fill your notebook with observations that will fuel ideas and aspiration. This class is for all levels.

The Goal of the Series is to explore the Wicker Park Gardens as a source of inspiration to YOU as you learn various painting and drawing techniques, to meet and share your work with others, and to assist in funding the 10,000 sq. ft. of gardens in Wicker Park.
**The Garden As Inspiration Series is a Project of the Wicker Park Garden Club and Advisory Council WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP with The Robey Chicago and The Chicago Park District.
