As an accomplished painter and sculptor (among other things) Sveta will offer programs in various mediums pertinent to our newest exhibition: Nature Trek. Students will utilize specimens from our Lee Loomis collection, as well as the habitats featured in Nature Trek, in order to highlight our beautiful Broome County and its surrounding areas. Mediums to choose from: gouache (a method of painting using opaque pigments ground in water and thickened with a glue like substance), gel pens and markers, or clay sculptures. Book early as availability is very limited!
