Like the French Impressionists “en plein air,” Cotten will be meeting students at the Great Swamp Conservancy, 8375 N. Main St., Canastota, and guide them in observing, sketching and painting natural scenes in a journal with pen and watercolors. In case of rain, the class will meet indoors at the Conservancy’s Center.
Cotten, who retired from teaching art in the Camden Central School District in 2004, has been conducting art workshops for children and adults at the OPL since 2005. She has exhibited her own art, especially her watercolors, at many small regional galleries and libraries, including the OPL.
Interested adults must register at the Oneida Library, 220 Broad St., for the class. Registered students will receive directions and a list of recommended art supplies and accessories for outdoor painting.
