Event Details

Saturday, June 22, 2024
9-10:30 a.m.
Harvest flowers and leaves, grind with mortar and pestle, add a dash of water, and transfer to a watercolor palette. These simple steps yield remarkably vibrant colors that change throughout the season. We will teach the basics for extracting color and then share the colors around the table. We’ll turn you loose with watercolor paper and you will have a relaxing time painting simple, (and possibly, more elaborate) plants and scenes.
