Part of an eight-week artist "in residence" educational program at the J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel, wildlife artist Ed Anderson will hold a Pop-Up Art Studio on June 4.

On select Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., he sets up on Wildlife Drive to sketch and interact with visitors. Look for the "Artist in Action" banner to meet Anderson and see him work.

The "Ding" Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge is hosting the artist "in residence" educational program as part of the refuge's ongoing 75th anniversary celebration. Anderson's work this spring and summer will culminate in a free exhibition of his journals and art starting in mid-February in the Visitor & Education Center auditoriums. He is also working from his studio at Blind Pass.
