Friday, June 17, 2022, 8:30 am – 10:30 am

With Dennis Schrader and Kerry Ann McLean

Flower Mandalas are circular designs that symbolize life, the universe and our connections to both. They also represent the transient nature of everything. During this workshop, we will use flowers, found objects, petals, and other plant material to create Mandalas on the paths connecting the Rondels. Later in the day as visitors step through them, the Mandalas will scatter– revealing the ephemeral nature of things.

Watercolor Painting

Friday, June 24, 2022, 9:30 am – 4:00 pm

With Wendy Prellwitz

DESCRIPTION:

Explore plein air painting in the garden with watercolor! We will take inspiration from the light, multitude of plant forms, and joy of color, as well as the garden environment.

To begin, we will cover some fundamental aspects of working with watercolor through demonstrations and exercises: characteristics of the paint itself, materials and tools, an intro to color mixing and manipulating wetness.

Afterwards we will choose places to work directly in the garden, beginning with several small quick studies, leading to more finished pieces as time allows, with individual attention to each participant’s process.

At day’s end, we will gather to review and share our work together.
