Nan Wilson
$50 for ADKX members; $60 for non-members

In this one day workshop you will learn the techniques of a multilayered painting with colored pencils, using nature as your inspiration.
Nan Wilson is all about the art of survival in Nature. Through her work she opens eyes to the fabulous often over looked creatures and plants nearby – an how to find them! After showings in galleries throughout the Adirondacks, her 26 Adirondack colored pencil wildflower portraits dubbed “An Adirondack Acre” have found a home in the permanent collection of the Adirondack Experience. Nan has gone on to paint her signature series of butterfly lifecycle watercolors showing the intricate interrelationship between the lifecycles of butterflies and their host plants. Her research and subjects span the U.S., Canada and Central America. Nan is a graduate of the Syracuse University with majors in Illustration and Painting with post-graduate studies in Atelier Dix-Sept and the Parsons School, both in Paris. She is the winner of a National Scholastic Art Award and a National Watercolor Award.

Nan divides her time between a home bordering on the Albany Pine Bush, a camp in the Adirondacks and the road – – chasing new species.
