Drawing at the Magic Wings Butterfly Conservator & Gardens

Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory & Gardens in South Deerfield, consists of an 18,400-square foot facility that includes a 8,000-sq. ft. glass conservatory filled with butterflies, moths and tropical vegetation. The conservatory temperature is about an 80-degree tropical-like environment. The heart-shaped pond with Japanese koi graces the center of the conservatory. The sound of the waterfall, peaceful music and hundreds of butterflies fluttering freely through the air creates a tranquil and serene atmosphere.


Admission is $14, with a discount for seniors and students. We can have coffee at the cafe afterwards for those who would like to talk about and share their drawings with each other or for those open to a critique. I suggest you pack light, the following is a good start:
-Sketchbook that opens to a flat surface, 5 x 7 inches is a good size.
-Kneaded and gum or plastic erasers.
-Pencils of course (hard and soft) and fine point marker.

It is a very moist warm environment so dress accordingly. Let's start the year off with some great drawings. Looking forward to seeing you all there—Peter
