As part of its Harvest Arts Festival, the Jamesport Meeting House is hosting Rob Shepperson, an acclaimed artist, illustrator, painter, muralist and children’s book author and illustrator to teach a still life drawing class on Sept. 29 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Shepperson’s editorial work has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek and Highlights for Children. He has authored or collaborated on several children’s books as well, including “The Sandman” and “The Memory Bank.”

Shepperson will lead aspiring artists on “a journey of seeing and mark making using pencils, charcoal and natural light available through the huge old windows at the 1731 Meeting House” according to a press release issued by the meeting house. Attendees will be drawing from objects and the immediate world around them.

The class is $35. For more information and to register, click here.

Funding for the class is made possible from a grant through the David Robert Lion Gardner Foundation.
