Join the Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation and the Sanibel-Captiva Art League for a continuation of their popular watercolor workshops with Marion Hall from 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 29. This class features an art meets science workshop about plants, specifically prickly pear. Jenny Evans, SCCF’s Native Landscapes & Garden Center Manager, will talk about observation skills that will help while studying plants for artistic purposes. Using Jenny’s tips, Marion Hall, SCAL member and award-winning watercolor artist, will lead participants in creating a watercolor painting of a Prickly Pear plant. Participants should bring their favorite watercolor paints, brushes and paper. Watercolor notecards will be available as part of the class materials.

If participants have questions about art materials or other art-related questions, they can call Marion Hall directly at 239-395-0432. Meet in the main house at the Bailey Homestead Preserve. Please call the Native Landscapes & Garden Center at 239-472-1932 with questions. Tickets are available at Eventbrite/SCCF; $30 for SCCF/SCAL members. $40 for non-members.
