Join the Garden’s Artist in Residence, Kyle Epps, in finding serenity and creative inspiration amidst nature’s palette. Through guided meditation, you’ll harmonize with the Garden’s tranquil energy, immersing yourself in the beauty of your surroundings. As you breathe in the fragrant blooms and listen to the rustling leaves, connect deeply with the earth and with yourself. With pastels in hand, explore the vibrant hues of the Garden, translating your inner reflections onto canvas. In this harmonious blend of meditation and art, you’ll cultivate a sense of peace and renewal, drawing inspiration from the natural world’s boundless beauty. This workshop will be held outdoors in the Flagler Garden, which will feature a shade garden horticultural display as part of the Garden’s anniversary exhibit, Flourish: 40 Years and Growing.
