Starting this summer, Manatee Lagoon is offering patrons onsite art classes twice weekly, providing class participants sweeping waterfront vistas of the Lake Worth Lagoon to help channel their creative energies. Adult classes are on Friday evenings; childrenâ€™s classes are Saturday afternoons. Local artist and Manatee Lagoon â€œManatee Masterâ€ Hannah Cooper, will lead the classes.
Beginning on Friday, June 10, for adults and Saturday, June 11, for children ages 6-12, guests will be invited to learn about the Lagoon and its ecosystem though artistic expression. Adults will paint a different Lake Worth Lagoon species each week, while simultaneously learning about that particular animalâ€™s place in the overall local ecosystem. Adults will leave each class with their original canvas.
Childrenâ€™s art activities will vary and include seascapes on canvas or coconuts, drawing food cycles, water colors, sculpting and crafts. Adults and children alike will learn art techniques such as mixing colors and shading while at the same time gain an understanding of the scientific wonders of the areaâ€™s animals and habitats.
On Fridays, guests experience a creative and relaxing night out, and on Saturdays, the beautiful scenery, free coffee and Wi-Fi help parents while away the time as their children have fun with art and science. Classes are $30 per two-hour session for adults; $15 for each 90-minute childrenâ€™s class. The registration fee covers all supplies. Space is limited, and participants may register at Manatee Lagoon or online for Artful Learning and can access a complete monthly calendar of events at VisitManateeLagoon.com/events.If you love Soul Of Miami, please consider leaving a testimonial.
