The Saint Louis Watercolor Society’s Urban Sketchers Second Outing

Today, June 8th, was the second outing for the STLWS Urban Sketchers.  They met in Webster Groves at the  Webster Groves Garden Cafe, 117 E. Lockwood, and then went their separate ways to capture what spoke to them.  Although the temperature was in the 90s today, the abundance of mature trees in Webster Groves gave them shade making the day enjoyable.  Here are some photos showing the various spots the artists captured.

Lee Walters at Powder Valley

Lee Walters took part in the Nature Artisan Series at the Powder Valley Conservation Nature Center on June 2nd.  With the help of David Anderson and Suzanne Galli Koenen, she demonstrated how she uses a pouring technique to create nature-inspired art. The event included a pouring activity that visitors to the nature center could try for themselves. Pouring paint was a big hit with the kids.
