Art Series

Nature All Around Us Art Series

“Painting with Abbey”

6:00 p.m. Friday, June 25th

Reservation Required Osborne Nature Center

The next fundraising event for the Nature All Around Us Art Series will be at 6 p.m. on June 25th at the Osborne Nature Center. Space is limited for the next painting class, so reservations are required. Deadline to register will be Tuesday, June 22nd.

Participants will be painting a rustic wildflower scene with Naturalist Abbey. The workshop is open to adults and teens. All art materials will be provided and participants will leave with a finished painting to take home. Participants are encouraged to bring snacks and beverages to enjoy while they paint.

Funds for this will benefit the Nature All Around Us Mural Project that was completed last spring at the Osborne Nature Center by Artist Jordyn Brennan, from Upper Iowa University. A grant through the Iowa Arts Council funded part of this project, but we still need a few matching funds to complete the grant. The Nature All Around Us Art Series is designed to inspire the imagination during educational programs and bring awareness and appreciation of art and nature to Osborne’s visitors. Watch our website and Facebook page for upcoming workshops.

Class size is limited to 9 participants, so register early at or call 563-245-1516 to reserve a spot.

The Osborne Center is located on Highway 13, five miles south of Elkader and is open 8:00am to 4:00pm, Monday-Friday.
