Welcome. I am so happy that you stopped by. Today you are invited to leave my garden and take a little field trip with me to the beautiful botanical gardens at Sherman Library and Gardens for a little review and repost of the classes I taught this year as part of their Art in The Garden series.
The Art in the Garden series is based on art lessons in the garden featuring seasonal flowers in bloom in the garden.
The setting for the classes is beautiful and so inspirational. The classes are for all levels of painters and non painters and we paint a single flower bloom on a small 4x4 canvas that is manageable for everyone taking the classes.
The gardens are tended by over 100 volunteers and staff.
The garden features 2 1/2 acres of shaded walkways, native California plants and flowers, fountains. turtle pond, green house, bog. library, tea garden, seasonal flowers and a fabulous cafe featuring French cuisine pared with California wines and seasonal fruits and vegetables - some are grown in the garden.
The art classes are held in this beautiful area.
Or here under the ancient pepper tree.
Fuchsias and book marks,
The Dahlia paint palette was so pretty I hated to throw it away so I saved it to use for wrapping paper.
Pumpkins and Sunflowers for Fall,
And for Christmas we are painting a Poinsettia on a gift box and whimsical gift tags.
Thank you for stopping by. I sincerely appreciate your visits, e-mails and comments and those who follow my blog. Once my classes are completed I plan to get back to blogging weekly.
Have a lovely week. Blessings, Erin
