A California gray whale season celebration has once again brought Dana Wharf Sportfishing & Whale Watching and renowned environmental artist Wyland together for an art inspired adventure package filled with whale, dolphin and others marine animal sightings in their natural habitat.

The program is designed for children ages 3 to 12 years old. For a $5 donation, children and an accompanying adult with paid admission can participate in an exclusive Wyland art lesson aboard the 95-foot Dana Wharf vessel, Dana Pride. Materials are included.

All art lessons are delivered via video and are followed by a two-hour whale watching tour.

Art lessons in the wild are offered each Saturday now through April 26, from 9 a.m. to noon. All artwork will be entered into a contest for prizes, including limited edition signed Wyland piece. Winning artwork will be chosen from three age groups, and winners will receive a $25 gift certificate to Wyland’s Laguna Beach studio and two Dana Wharf whale watching tickets.

Contest winners will be announced May 11 and their work will be framed and shown at Dana Wharf throughout the month. Advanced registration is required for all trips. Donations made benefit the Wyland Foundation. More information can be found at www.danawharf.com or by calling 888.224.0603.
