Spring is upon us and that means flowers, flowers and more flowers! We will meet at Jenkins Arboretum where we will be surrounded by Azaleas and Rhododendrums galore! After an inspiring, delightful, colorful, and peaceful hike through the arboretum and by the pond (Can you tell how much I love this place???), we'll use a collage spilling technique from Diane Trout's book using writing, collaging, and gesso to create a background for creating floral and spring images on. Come with your journal, watercolors, container for water (painting), pencil, scissors, fine tip permanent markers/gel pens, floral imagery/paper and any other papers you want to share with others for collaging. I will bring the gesso. You may want to bring items you need for being outdoors such as drinking water, bug repellant, hat, sun screen, comfy shoes etc. It is free to get into Jenkins! There are water fountains, bathrooms and a gift shop. Trail is paved with majority of it being flat.
