You’ve seen him work on the spectacular mural in the nature center, now’s your chance to learn his techniques! Nederland area artist and community member Greg Marquez will lead Wild Bears through a step by step process of drawing animals. Expect to gain valuable skills and knowledge to apply to any creative project! Wild Bear will supply the pencils and paper, while Greg provides his artistic expertise and enthusiasm.
Greg Marquez grew up in that mythical place called the American West and is a Colorado Native. Largely taught by the precious beauty of open spaces such as land and sky, Greg’s watercolors and acrylics are rooted in impressions of place– both landscapes and wildlife rendered with realism and abstraction—and thus imbued with the color and light so unique to the West. Greg has been awarded four corporate commissions and is currently working on a mural for the Nederland DDA. His work has appeared in juried shows and galleries across Colorado and his paintings are held in private collections along the Front Range. Greg is also a wood-worker and toymaker and owner of Mooseworks Colorado. He lives outside of Rollinsville with the writer Karen Auvinen and their dog River and cat, Dottie.
