Explore your artistic nature at the Morton Arboretum. On June 11th, come early to stroll among the trails and trees, then meet us in the Arbor Room for mingling and a glass of wine. Then it’s time to let your creative juices flow! Artist Kimberly Darovec, from Chicago Sip & Paint, will guide you through the process of crafting this colorful, captivating painting.
Trees weave networks, both above and below ground. Just like humans, our faithful green friends communicate through means that are easy to notice, and also in ways that take more digging to discern. Your visual communication transforms a blank canvas into a masterpiece you’ll be proud to hang in your home. Paints and direction will be available to use blues or greens instead of pinks if that makes the painting sing for you.
Your ticket includes admission to the Morton Arboretum, all art supplies, step by step instructions, one complimentary glass of wine*, light snacks, and the pleasure of painting within our picturesque landscape. A portion of the proceeds supports the Arboretum’s mission and work.
*Additional beverages can be purchased at the cash bar.
Notes: No art experience necessary. All supplies included. Dress for a mess. One drink ticket is included in the cost of the program, cash bar to follow. Limit 45
