The Artist in the Garden: The Garden in the Artist
March 28, 2010
Just in Time for Spring
Join best selling and award winning author and illustrator Sharon Lovejoy as she takes us on a personal walk through gardens around the world.
Lovejoy will show you how to use colors, textures, patterns, water elements, and whimsy to transform even the smallest space into a living work of art, a collage of flora and fauna.
Learn how a garden can be used as a canvas and how art can be inspiration in a garden design.
“Just as Monet’s garden influenced his art, his art influenced his garden.”
