Olivia’s Birds: Artist Workshop & Book Signing at Old Town Arts & Crafts Guild

April 16, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free
Olivia Bouler
Olivia Bouler was 11 years old at the time of the devastating Gulf oil spill. The young artist and aspiring ornithologist found a way that she could help. Working with National Audubon, Olivia raised $200,000.00 for Gulf recovery by selling her original drawings of birds and wildlife. She inspired us all with her determination to make a difference!
Join us at The Old Town Art and Crafts Guild (28265 Main Rd, Cutchogue) on April 16th to meet Olivia, now 16, and still a champion for birds and the environment. Hear about ways we can all become better stewards of the earth. Participate in a drawing workshop given by this talented young artist. A selection of Olivia’s paintings will be on exhibit and for sale and her book, Olivia’s Birds: Saving the Gulf, will be available for purchase.
Olivia’s presentation (1 PM to 3 PM) will be followed by a reception with refreshments (3 PM to 5 PM). In addition to Olivia’s exhibit, local children’s art related to nature and bird photographs from noteworthy North Fork photographers will be on exhibit (4/16, 4/17 and 4/23, 4/24). Parking in lot adjacent to the building.
The Beacon’s full story is online here.
