Paint Out: Spring Valley Nature Center/ Guest Artist: Frankie Johnson. This is a Sunday

June 25, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm CDT

Our guest artist for June is Frankie Johnson,  Her colorful, energetic work includes landscape, figures and still life, done in many media.  Frankie is the owner of the Main Street Art Center in Lake Zurich where she provides insightful help to her students.  She has won many awards and has published a book of her work, “Painting Through Life.”

Today’s paint out is a new one for the group.  Spring Valley Nature Center is located at 1111 East Schaumburg Road, Schaumburg, Il.  There is easy access from Rte 83, near Woodfield, get off at Higgins.  Entry sign is hard to see because it’s in the shadow of a big tree,  people often pass it and then see it and turn around. We will meet in the parking lot of the Nature Center at 9:20

This is from Frankie Johnson who we thank very much for putting this together
We are going to the floating pier at the: Wetland Bird Observation Area.
Follow Signs, ask people because signs aren’t great.
I will be painting at the pond from the floating pier.
