Description

Learn expert watercolor techniques from artist and fellow gardener Marian Hirsch while you enjoy wine and snacks from our Cafe in the inspirational surroundings of our Gallery.

In March, it's time for roses! Pointers for different approaches to painting roses will be included: decorative, botanically correct, impressionistic or wildly abstract. A bit of history will add to the mix, as you learn about some of the more famous American painters who have found inspiration in the 'queen of flowers'.

Each workshop covers a different concept and principle, and are limited to 14 students so that everyone receives the best in one-on-one instruction. New to our workshop or a beginner? Please arrive at 1:30 for a guided orientation to receive the New to Watercolor handouts with additional resources and tips to help you further your art.
