    CORNWALL-The Museum of the Hudson Highlands will present "Art Inspired by Nature" an art workshop series featuring local artists Susan Silverman Fink and Paul Gould. In workshops using the media of watercolor, pastel or acrylic, the public will be guided by the artists to examine the natural beauty of the Hudson Highlands. Two workshops will be offered by each artist in which participants will learn to express what they see in nature. The workshops will be held July 17, July 25, Aug. 14, and Aug. 15.
