Gather in the Wagner's serene garden for an evening of guided drawing, cocktails, and refreshments. Artist Rebecca Gilbert will begin the session with a brief lesson on historical botanical illustration and technique, illustrated by examples from the Wagner’s archives. Then, choose your subject in the Wagner’s yard, which includes pollinator plants, fall foliage, and our historic building exterior. Throughout the evening, your drawing will be supported by refreshments and Rebecca’s expertise. Registration includes a botanically inspired cocktail by Liberty Gin. This event is rain or shine, and basic drawing materials will be provided.
