Treat yourself to a day of art. Morning lessons at the gallery plus afternoon plein air painting at the garden. René will start with an overview of materials and demonstrations to show a variety of quick sketching and painting techniques. After lunch we’ll head to the garden. Set up an easel or paint in a journal, surrounded by peaceful greenery, colorful blossoms and like-minded souls.
Focus on flowers, foliage, landscape or fellow painters — whatever strikes your fancy.
ABOUT ELK ROCK GARDEN
The garden at Bishop’s Close is a peaceful place to stroll or reflect. It is a large garden with rare and interesting plants from around the world in a natural, sprawling setting. It feels like a secret garden – a true hidden gem. Follow the trail around the entire garden and view the Willamette river as you reach the the south lawn. You’ll also find views of Mt. Hood. Park on a bench and sketch the beauty of nature.
