Bring the family to the Garden to enjoy an afternoon in the Backcountry with relaxing meditation and stimulating drawing. Lisa Trivell will lead a session of light stretching and guided relaxation that leads into drawing with watercolor crayons. Let the Garden’s landscapes and California native plants inspire your creativity! Participants of all levels are welcome – no prior experience in stretching or drawing is necessary! For this class we recommend participants are at least 4 years old.

Participants will need to bring to this class the following items:
