Join USFWS Volunteer, Naturalist and Expressive Artist Wendy Rappaport to connect with the beautiful Kettle Pond Rhode Island Native Plant Garden.  Learn about plants & nature by observing and recording what you see on paper- and at the same time express yourself with the materials provided.


 This class is not about learning how to draw, it’s about observation & expression. Some writing will be included. No experience necessary. All materials provided, unless you’d like to bring your favorites. Bring water, hat, sunscreen and small camping type stool to sit on if you have one. Frequent as many sessions as you wish to experience the seasonal changes that take place. For all ages! Garden and Visitor Center are wheel chair accessible.
