Parkinglot is south of the entrance.

Activities: Outdoor Painting -  Acrylic or watercolor flower painting. We will be finding a beautiful area in the gardens to work on painting close up flowers. There are so many places. We believe it's best to find good, comfortably shade and THEN find something to paint :). The Chinese pagota is fun but detailed.

Watercolor Clinic:

Step 1 - sketch drawing

  • Use HB or B pencil, harder the better, use mitten to keep from rubbing, can trace over online image, grafite rubbing, carbon copy onto nice paper
  • Structure - create framework
  • Gesture - flow of action
  • Symbol of object vs drawing shapes of what you see (Betty Edwards - Drawing with the Right side of the Brain)

Step 2 - Block in colors, light to dark, use water liberally  Online courses - Paint crush, Kristy Partridge watercolor
