Event Details

Saturday, July 23, 2022 | 10:30 AM to 3:30 PM

Take in sunlit moments splashed with vibrant colors from the Richard H. Simons Tropical Rainforest as we draw and paint from its wondrous beauty. Join fellow artists as we explore this treasure from our garden and capture its essence under the guidance of Carlos Gallostra. Using references taken from a wide array of tropical species from the rainforest, we’ll take these back to the studio where you will be able to develop a dynamic illustrative work in watercolor, color pencils, or mixtures of both. All levels are welcomed!
