Roger’s Gardens is proud to present the 4th Annual “Day of Art.” This event attracts 50 talented artists to paint and draw in the Gardens for the day, representing their creative interpretation of Roger’s Gardens.

Schedule of Events


Printmaking Workshop: Printing Posies and Plants

10 AM – 1 PM
Location: Amphitheater

Local artists Sheryl Seltzer and Carol Kreider will teach you to create your own art print inspired by the beautiful flowers and plants of the gardens. Guests will draw and transfer to a small relief plate as the instructors ink the plate and the guests “pull” their own print! This is a rewarding art project for all skills and ages. Instructor Sheryl Seltzer has a studio in Laguna Beach and teaches at Concordia University.


Awards Ceremony

12:00 PM
Location: Outdoor Living

Ten awards of excellence will be presented to the 50 participating artists. These artists will be recognized for their outstanding inspirations and interpretations of Roger’s Gardens through their artworks. The judge is Gil Dellinger, a retired professor of art of the University of the Pacific, Signature Member of The Pastel Society of America, California Art Club, and PAPA, Plein Air Painters of America.


Drawing Workshop: Journal your Garden through Art / Drawing Leaves and Flowers in the Garden

2 PM – 3:30 PM
Location: Amphitheater

Learn to draw leaves, flowers, and a few drawing secrets from perspectives of botanical art instructors Deborah Shaw, Clara Josephs, and Diane Daly. This is a great workshop for the whole family, as no art experience is required. All three instructors are members of the American Society of Botanical Artists, along with the Botanical Artists Guild of Southern California. They have taught and been represented throughout the country with many notable museums and cultural centers.
