Paint & Sip at Art in the Gardens

Saturday, August 6
and Sunday, August 7
from 3PM to 5PM with Miss Rossi 
at the MCBG Vegetable Garden

Grab a friend or three and join Miss Rossi in creating a 16" x 20" masterpiece painting at the beautiful Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens! Canvases, paints, brushes, instruction, and wine sponsored by Artevino Natural Wines are all included in the price of the class. All you need to bring is yourself. Miss Rossi will guide you step by step to create your painting while offering tips and tricks to create the look you desire. Let's step outside, sip wine together and get creative! This is a beginning acrylic painting class, so no experience is necessary.
