Karen Johnson promises blooms as she hosts a paint-out at her home on Thursday, June 9, 2011 from 9:30 am until 1 pm or so. Karen’s garden includes such June favorites as peonies, iris, and honeysuckle, as well as many native plants. There is a small pond with some goldfish, and Karen even suspects that a hummingbird or two may make an appearance!
Karen also promises bugs! If it rains, Karen has the unequaled ability to supply the group with insects, shells and other natural items (for those of you wondering why, it’s because Karen is an entomologist and the instructor of many insect-inspired art classes at the arboretum). She has plenty of room at her kitchen and dining room tables, but suggests you bring your own light.
Indoors or out, it promises to be fun! Bring a lunch if you’d like to stay later, and please RSVP to Karen if you’re planning to come (you can find her contact information in our Yearbook).
