If you've been looking for a chance to expand your artistic expression, Sunday, June 3, brings a chance to learn to burn, paint, etch and emboss decorative gourds when Mesa artists Gerald and Vicki Johnson offer their next workshop at Boyce Thompson Arboretum. Class registration of $39 includes a gourd and full morning of coaching and artistic inspiration from 9am-2pm. Tools, paints and paintbrushes are provided during the workshop as well.
To sign up, have a credit card ready and call (520)689-2723.
Enrollment includes daily admission; arrive early and walk the 1.5 mile main trail through the gardens. Dogs on leashes are welcome as well.
BTA opens at 6 a.m. during the summer months.
Coming events and classes include a Dragonfly Walk on Saturday, June 2 with Roger Racut, and Michael Madsen Camera Basics on June 9 (and there's a 'Learn Your Lizards' walk that morning, too).
