Mother's Day and more at Camp Cactus!

*Updated Friday, May 11th: Please note that the PayPal site was down temporarily this morning, but never fear, if you are experiencing a problem, you can email or call me directly and I will reserve a space for you in any of these classes! (see sidebar to the right for contact info)

Spring has finally arrived in Portland, and the weather today is glorious! The studio doors are open wide, the birds are singing with utter abandon, and creative inspiration is everywhere. I've added several classes to the schedule, including two on Mother's day. A lovely art class and a Mother's Day Mimosa could be just the ticket for a unique gift for any mom.
Happy Spring everyone!

Botanical Watercolors
Learn the basics of watercolor painting and forage in my garden for leaves and flowers to paint. We'll discuss papers, brushes and materials, and I'll guide you step by step through a simple method of drawing leaves and flowers. Even if you can barely draw a stick figure, you'll come away with a beautiful botanical watercolor painting, and the discovery that you truly are an artist!
No experience necessary, just come and play.
