Bring your paint, questions, and ongoing projects to our weekly series of meetups hosted by instructor Susan Pearson.

Make new friends, or catch up with old ones while you paint the morning away. Fresh seasonal plant material from the garden will be provided for inspiration, or you may bring your own. Some watercolour painting experience required. Single class or full series registration available to suit your schedule.
