Intro Photography Class: New to photography or interested in taking your photos up a notch? Ever wonder what ISO is and why you should care? Get out of “Auto” mode and join League Artists and photographers Tracy Loring and Jason Ferrell for a two hour hands on workshop exploring your creative camera settings. You’ll learn the levers and trade offs when controlling exposure and how to “Create a Third Dimension” in your compositions. If you can control the aperture and shutter speed settings on your camera, this workshop is for you!
Please bring your camera and cable with you to class

Artist Demo: One of our Featured Artists at the Art Center this month is Robin Lively. She studied art at the University of Houston, and since then has continued her study of painting with several masters, including renowned artist Albert Handell. Mrs. Lively primarily paints in pastels, but occasionally uses oils, acrylics or watercolor. Her preferred subjects are natural settings, and loves exploring the play of light and shadows. Come
see her in action and observe her process.

Wine Tasting: Stop by our wine tasting station, hosted by Blessed Bee Winery, and sample a fine selection of wines. All wines are available for purchase in the Blessed Café in the Art Center. A light fare menu and pastries are also available all day in the café.

Painted Rocks Community Project: We are continuing our community project from June to create more painted rocks using craft paints and locally sourced river rocks. All ages welcome, and no art skills necessary! Our finished collection of rocks will be incorporated into the landscaping project of the back lawn of the art center, and for now, will be placed in the rock bed by the back entrance. Led by artist Raquel Lea.

Kids Table: Mayan Hieroglyphs: The ancient Mayans, dating back to 2600 B.C., were an innovative civilization. One of their many advancements was their writing system, or hieroglyphs. It was not an alphabet, but a series of phonetic signs and symbols carved into stone, and was used until many years after the Spanish conquest of Mexico. For this project, kids will use glue and string on card-stock to create one of these beautiful images
to take home. Best for kids 7 and up.
Kids Table: Watercolor Cave Drawings: Native American cave drawings have been found in over 250 sites around Texas along rivers, streams and cliffs. These early drawings, dating from around 3000B.C., depicted plants, maps, wildlife, and weather. Later, they drew Spanish figures and other non-Native Americans as they arrived in their homeland. In this activity, kids of all ages can have a pre-drawn cave image to fill in with watercolors and take home.
4:00 – 5:00pm In the Art of the Pines Gallery (Free tips appreciated)
The Shop Dawgs: These Dawgs call Bastrop home and will be performing live in the Art of the Pines gallery for everyone to enjoy.
