The RAL Art Center at 19 N Main Street, Kilmarnock, in conjunction with the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, will offer “Portrait Drawing in Charcoal” on October 2 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
 
Portraits can be some of the most expressive drawings. We will start by identifying the simple patterns and forms that are the basis for a well-designed portrait. During a demonstration on developing expression through form, value and line, students will find that a portrait is much more than recording proportions. Emphasis will be on creating a portrait that is an expression of the artist and the subject. Students need to bring a large photo to work from. Photos at least 8x10 are recommended. Photos taken in natural light with clear contrast are recommended. All materials are included.
 
Members $65 / Non-Members $75
Maximum: 8 Students
 
Students may register by contacting the RALAC at 804-436-9309. Registration and payment must be received one week before the workshop date.
 
Due to COVID-19, all guests, students, and instructors must wear a face covering that covers your mouth and nose. Please maintain social distancing of 6 feet at all times. Help protect our community.

Take a Walk on the Wild Side at Belle Isle State Park with this monthly series of true nature walks. 

Local volunteer naturalists will share a variety of natural history topics, point out aspects of the park's many habitats (ideal for plant and animal life viewing), and provide participants with nature-photography tips should they need assistance. The walks will be conducted at a leisurely pace to allow stops along the way to observe and discuss seasonal aspects of what is happening at the park. 

The park's 892 acres are comprised of several distinct types of wetlands that are home to many predatory birds like blue herons, osprey, hawks and bald eagles. White-tailed deer, turkeys, groundhogs, rabbits, squirrels, moles, reptiles and amphibians are also common. This biodiversity makes an excellent outdoor laboratory for environmental education and it also makes the park a great place to "Walk on the Wild Side" with nature, relax, and enjoy a stroll.  

Participants should dress for the weather, wear closed toe shoes appropriate for walking, and bring a water bottle. For more information or to find out where to meet for this month's hike, call the park at 804-462-5030.
