What you'll do
We will meet at Cypress Bend Park where I will have all materials and set up for a relaxing immersive painting experience. I will provide chairs, all art supplies and some light snacks and drinks. We will set up in the actual water, the river at this place is low enough to come right to the seat of a chair, the painting kits which I created are comfortable in your lap so that you can enjoy the cool of the water as you work on a painting of the beautiful cypress lined Guadalupe river. I will provide art instructions as much as you like or as little and all ages and skill levels are invited.May also bring children or pets to play in the water during the session as long as you keep an eye on them for no extra charge. As well, may bring your own supplies or snacks if you like. The Guadalupe river is a source of endless inspiration; with the gentle shadows of clouds and cypress trees reflecting of the water, frequent birds and tubers can add splashes of life to your painting composition.
