SPRING Extra special paintout- these photos are from a few years ago when Chuck introduced us to this special garden spot!
Saturday, April 29!
We will be at the
Cuyamaca College Water Conservation Garden
during the Spring Garden Festival and the Butterfly Festival, providing us countless ideas for painting. The garden has gotten better every year as the water wise plants and flowers flourish. The rains we had this year also had a major effect on all that blooms. As a special treat the garden plans on a butterfly release during the day to float color in the sky! Bring your lunch and plan to spend the day painting and enjoying the festival. Invite your artist friends too as it’s a lot of fun and a great way to spend a San Diego Spring day! We will be at the NEW
Gazebo located near the front entrance.
