EAU CLAIRE — For adults interested in learning new skills and meeting people, the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire College of Arts and Sciences Continuing Education/UW-Extension is offering Saturday Samplers.
"Watercolor Demonstration" will be held from 9 a.m. to noon March 25 at the Eau Claire County Extension office in Altoona. Participants will be shown basic watercolor techniques, such as painting wet on wet, creating textures with tools other than a paintbrush, and detailing a painting and composition. The demonstration costs $20.
The "Floral Design" workshop will provide new ideas on arranging familiar flowers. Participants should take with them a vase to use for making their own floral arrangements. The workshop will be offered from 9 a.m. to noon April 15 in Room 308 of Hibbard Humanities Hall. The $25 fee covers instruction and materials.
During "Past & Future of Life on Earth" participants will take a guided tour of the area around Eau Claire's Mt. Simon, as well as of road cuts near Plum City, to learn about fossils and the history of life on earth. The tour will run from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 29. Participants should meet in the Fine Arts Parking Lot on the UW-Eau Claire campus. The $35 fee covers instruction and transportation.
