Don’t miss Garden Family Day

Mar

12

As a finale to Garden Week, March 12-17, The Cummer is hosting Garden Family Day on Saturday, March 17th, 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Please join us for all of the festivities.

  • If you haven’t already, check out Impressionism and Post Impressionism from The High Museum of Art. The painting capture the color and light of being in the glorious outdoors.
  • Make a garden journal that you can use to sketch plein air–that means you can sketch outside in the gardens.
  • Paint a butterfly that you can fly from flower to flower through the gardens.
  • Draw a still life in the studio capturing all of the color and forms of garden plants, insects, and statues.
  • Complete a scavenger hunt through the garden and win a prize.
  • Paint in the garden using a kit from Make Art Now.
  • Learn about the gardens through our new garden interactives–listen to an audio tour of the garden, complete a garden family guide, follow the paths of the garden map on your smartphone, take a tour by following a printed guide, and more.
If you’ve never been to a Family Day at The Cummer, don’t miss this one. The garden is especially beautiful at this time and there is some great artwork not to be missed.
