A photo or a lingering gaze may not be quite enough to capture the beauty and emotion of a garden. If you have ever wanted to put a paintbrush to paper this is your opportunity. Learn basic watercolor techniques and drawing skills to use in expressing your inspiration. All materials will be supplied and most will go home with you afterwards. With the certainty that every single human being has the ability to create, all are welcome to this “beginners” class. Instructor Shelley Row has been a visual arts teacher and painter for over thirty-five years. (If you have taken this class previously and would like more practice; while some basic techniques will be reviewed, the photo inspirations and primary painting will be different than any previous classes.)

Our Garden continues to follow CDC recommendations and state guidelines for preventing the spread of COVID-19. Properly worn masks are strongly encouraged for indoor class participants regardless of vaccination status. The Garden reserves the right to implement additional safety measures. Any updates will be communicated prior to class, if possible.
