Wildlife Center of Virginia, Waynesboro, VA

Come join us for a special painting workshop featuring Maggie the Peregrine Falcon as our model! The workshop will begin with a short presentation from Wildlife Center staff on Maggie and her role as an education animal, then students will work with artist Amy Shawley to discover the basics of watercolor and illustration as well as learn fun and easy ideas for painting birds. We will have three 20 minute sessions with Maggie present to draw and paint her from life and we will also provide photographs of her to use during the remainder of our painting time.
