    July 3 @ 9AM: Art on Demand | An Architectural Tour of Alys Beach

    In this episode, Marieanne shares interesting facts and intricate design details with viewers as well as some of the stories behind the iconic buildings and award-winning homes of beautiful Alys Beach. The architecture of Alys Beach is perhaps the most striking amongst the communities of scenic 30A. Drawing inspiration from Bermuda and Antigua, Guatemala, Alys Beach’s stark white masonry walls and private courtyard homes create a harmonious, urban environment characterized by calmness and simplicity. To drive past the Butteries and down the palm-lined allée is to wonder about this beautiful town, and here Marieanne divulges the concepts behind the architectural design, the New Urbanist planning, the harmonious integration of landscape and special little secrets hidden within the pathways of Alys.

    July 8 @ 9AM: Art on Demand | Kickstart to Understanding Light & Shadow

    In this episode, local artist Heather Clements Art will demonstrate how to create more realistic and dynamic artworks by learning to understand light and shadows. Dive into how light works, different kinds of shadows, highlights, and more. Then, learn the steps to actually capture effective lighting in your own art in this kickstart lesson.

    Supply Needed: Paper, Pencil, Eraser

    July 15 @ 9AM: Art on Demand | Painting In Plein Air With Melody Bogle

    In this episode, join local artist Melody Bogle for a Plein Air painting demonstration. Painting in Plein Air will allow you to see color better and become a faster painter as you are in a race with the moving sun and the shadows it creates. For the purposes of this demonstration, you’ll see a Plein Air painting in pastels from a photo of our beautiful dunes here in South Walton. One can paint with any media so pack it up and join the growing number of artists out painting in the world. CLICK HERE to view supplies needed.
