Nature Painting Workshop for Kids

Painting from nature can be tricky, but it is also wonderfully satisfying. Young people are invited to study their surroundings and then create paintings of the natural world. The Centre for the Arts brings “Outside Art Lessons” with Dawn Malosh to Millstream Park in Centreville on Saturday October 8 from 1-4 p.m. Students ages 7-14 will learn techniques artists use to make a painting look interesting and realistic while using acrylic paint, canvases and easels to paint landscapes, water scenes, wildlife and birds. Register by September 30. Fees are $35 members, $42 non-members.

Malosh teaches art education at the Key School in Annapolis and has nearly two decades of experience in the art and environmental education field. She has worked at various environmental and learning conservation centers including the world famous Biosphere 2. Regionally she has partnered with Environmental Concern Inc., Pickering Creek Audubon, and Adkins Arboretum.

The Centre for the Arts classes are designed to renew existing artistic interests, and to develop new skills. Registration materials are available at 206 South Commerce St. in Centreville, MD Tuesday through Friday from 9am to 5pm and Saturday from 10am to 2pm, or by calling 410.758.2520, online at, or request via email at The Centre receives support through a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council.
