2012 Iris Gardens Plein Air Short Trip
Mark your calendars and make plans early to join Susie in 2012!
The best time for the iris bloom is usually between Mother's Day and Memorial Day.
The exact dates will be announced in the early spring
when we have a better idea what Mother Nature will do in 2012.

And the dates are:   June 1, 2, 3, 2012

Deposits for attending will be accepted in January 2012.
Class size is limited to 8-10 participating artists. For Info

Each spring and early summer I travel to some of the most beautiful gardens to teach how to paint watercolor irises on location en
plein air. Some of my favorite spots to paint irises are at Schreiner's Iris Garden and Cooley's Iris Gardens near Salem, Oregon.  
Along with daily demonstrations each student receives individual instruction and
learns how to paint irises and other garden flowers outside (en plein aire) in watercolor.
