DRINK AND DRAW
May 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until May 30, 2019
Thursday, May 2, 2019 – 6:00pm to 7:00pm
Join us for a series of Thursday evenings focusing on the growing habits of a particular plant and enjoying a cocktail (or mocktail). Our horticulturists will share their knowledge, we will carefully observe the plant and all of its parts, then record our visual observations from different perspectives. No technical drawing instruction will be offered. The focus of this experience is to spend time honing our sense of sight by concentrating on the shapes, lines, patterns and sizes formed by the plant life, and attempting to translate those elements into two dimensions on paper. We will use our sense of taste, as imbibing something tasty will add to our enjoyment of the evening.
If weather prevents us from doing this outdoors, we will take clippings from the featured plant and proceed with cocktails and drawing in the Mabee Grange.
Ticket price covers all supplies, including a variety of pens, pencils, papers and erasers, light refreshments, and one beverage per person. Additional beverages may be purchased and virgin cocktails will be available. Space is limited so sign up early.
$15 for Garden members; $20 for non-members per session. Sign up for all 5 sessions and save: $65 for members, $85 for non-members.
