Watercolor Spring Flowers & Lunch on the Farm
Come to Burton Kimble Farms Education Center for a day of inspiration with Jeanne Ellen Dutton, accomplished artist and instructor. Spring will soon be blooming and this is your opportunity to learn how to paint those beautiful flowers popping up all around us. After a quick tutorial on how to use watercolors, students will follow along and create two or three paintings. A light lunch will be served in the comfort of the Old Farmhouse. Previous watercolor experience not essential, even those who’ve never painted before - just bring your creativity and we will bring the supplies.
