Schedule of Events
Printmaking Workshop: Printing Posies and Plants
10 AM – 1 PM
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.
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.
