Bring art material in any medium you fancy, a portable stool/chair, a brown bag lunch, water to drink, sunscreen, some warm clothes and anything else needed to make this a splendid, comfortable and creative day.

Email Camille with any questions at Or call 272-8781 (cell phone) if you arrive after 10:30am so that Camille can direct you to our chosen location on the land.  Suggested donation of $10.
