Our friend, Rick Silver, has made a generous challenge to the Bartlett Arboretum community: if we can raise at least $25,000 during our Fall Annual Fund drive, Rick will donate $25,000 to support our children's education programs and camp scholarships.
Your support is critical to our continued success.
WON'T YOU HELP MEET THE CHALLENGE?
Bring your school or after-school group to visit the Bartlett!
Check out our 2016-2017 programs brochure below. We can also design a customized experience for your group.
We ask that self-guided groups schedule their visits in advance, but there is no charge to visit our grounds. Please contact Emily Curry, director of education, for more information

Loft Artist Association Member, Mark Macrides Opens His Exhibit November 7
Silver Educational Center Gallery
Monday - Friday 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Macrides, who has historically worked in oils, was inspired by a museum visit to begin working in collage 2 years ago. He describes his experience with the medium as "liberating" and enjoyed the opportunity it presented to work in shorter durations of time. "I wanted to create a series of work that reflects the materials we come into contact with on a daily basis but in a way that inspires mystery and awe."

How to Draw Natural Forms of Life
Meet at the Silver Educational Center
Wednesdays 9:30 p.m. - 11:30 p.m.
$20 per class
Learn to develop a natural, individual drawing style using forms from nature as your subject. Through close observation we will examine various types of organic forms and explore each form's unique qualities. Movement, use of positive and negative space, exaggeration, choice of composition and employment of light are some of the means of imparting individual materials that will lead us to our discoveries. Please email Kathie Milligan at
