Local farm to provide creative outlet for beginner artists

May 14, 2017 by  

Everyone is encouraged to take part in an exciting drawing class this month, led by botanical artist Diane Bouchier.

Melville residents are invited to the Suffolk County Farm and Education Center to let their artistic side shine. The Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County has a unique drawing class taking place that provides instruction in the basics of drawing animals. Anyone age nine and above can take part.

Bouchier will be assisting the artists, and the many farm animals living at the location will be on view for reference. The admission fees are $10 per adult and $5 for children 18 and younger.

Educational opportunities offer a way for businesses to encourage new interest in their organization. Local businesses owners may wish to consider what skills they or their employees have to offer to people in the community. Even informative guides, how-tos, and other printed brochures can provide advice and education if a class is too time-consuming for the organization.

The Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County is a nonprofit organization affiliated with Cornell University. Established in 1917, it offers a variety of community education programs. The class will take place from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM next Saturday, May 20. Those interested can stop by the Suffolk County Farm and Education Center Facebook page for details on the upcoming drawing class, or visit the website for information about the organization and future events.
