The herb garden is the perfect setting for painting with watercolors, especially when paired with herbalist Heather Cusack and accomplished local watercolor artist Melissa Hyatt. With sketch book in hand, you’ll visit the herb garden, learn about the botanical parts of each plant and their uses, and then learn techniques to capture their beauty on paper. Return to the barn to apply watercolor paints under Melissa’s guidance while enjoying herb tea prepared by Heather. Leave with new skills along with knowledge of planting and enjoying herbs from the garden. Bring your sketchbook and drawing materials, watercolor supplies will be provided. Space is limited to 15, prepaid reservations required by May 5. Rain or shine.
