From page A2 | April 11, 2012 |

The UC Davis Arboretum invites artists of all skill levels to participate in a drawing and painting workshop with Peter London from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Employing simple, expressive art media in a safe and supportive setting with a few like-minded folks, participants will learn to create images that explore the connections between their inner selves and nature.

The instructor will guide participants to make art “the way nature makes the world; like a river that flows and flows until it arrives at its destination.”

The only prerequisites for the workshop are an open mind, an adventurous spirit, and a willingness to step outside. Materials will be provided.

London is the author of “No More Secondhand Art” (1987), “Community-Based Art Education” 1993, “Drawing Closer to Nature” 2001 and numerous articles. He is an active studio artist whose work is in many private and public collections.

He has taught and lectured in art, art education and art therapy across North America and in Europe for the past 40 years, in many universities, museums and centers for holistic studies such as Omega Institute, Rowe Conference Center, Kripalu Yoga Center and his own summer institute.

London is a UCD Arboretum volunteer and friend, and is donating all proceeds from this workshop to the Friends of the UC Davis Arboretum.

The workshop will take place at the Wyatt Deck, on Old Davis Road in the UC Davis Arboretum. If it rains, the workshop will move indoors to Environmental Horticulture 146.

Free parking is available in Visitor Lot 5, at Old Davis Road and A Street. The fee for the workshop is $75 ($65 for members of Friends of the UC Davis Arboretum) and includes materials.

Pre-registration is required. To register, email [email protected] or call (530) 752-4880. The class limited to 20 participants.
