Field Trip: The Foster, Daniel Smith Fine Watercolor Demo, and the Baylands

February 23, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm PST

This month, we have an extra special event: A demonstration by a representative from Daniel Smith Fine Watercolor at The Foster in Palo Alto. We will learn about and get to play with some pigments from my favorite watercolor maker. My Naturalist Store will be at this event, so we will have books, waterbrushes, and Daniel Smith paint for sale, as well as my Custom Watercolor Palette, which features Daniel Smith Fine Watercolor paints. We will also explore and learn from the beautiful artwork of Tony Foster, and take a nature journaling trip to the nearby Palo Alto

Note: There will be THREE sessions of Daniel Smith Paint demos. We expect a large turnout for this event, and demo groups will be limited to 30, as a smaller group will enable more people to have this unique and fun hands-on experience.

10:00: Check in begins–Meet at the Palo Alto Baylands. You can sign up for a demo time when you arrive that morning. 
12:15-1:15: Potluck Lunch at the Palo Alto Baylands
1:30-3:00: Second Demo at the Foster
3:30-5:00: Third Demo at the Foster

You can sign up for a demo time when you arrive that morning. Those not in the demo can enjoy the Baylands for nature journaling, or go to the Foster and enjoy Tony Foster’s amazing work in the museum.
