Create Prairie Art

We helped community residents explore their creativity with botanical art classes at the Country Life Center during September 2019. Professional artists guided participants through the entire process. We offered 4 classes in watercolor, sunprint paper and sunprint scarves.

There are no upcoming events at this time.
