Sunday, April 29th 9am-1pm

This day is dedicated to the artist in you. Bring your easel and supplies, or camera, and spend the day painting, sketching, or “shooting” to your heart’s content. There are potentially thousands of beautiful images to capture at Wakamatsu. With 272 acres of springs, streams, oaks, and vistas, an old barn, dairy, gravesite, home and gardens, the viewpoints are endless. Docents may be on hand to share the history of this remarkable piece of property still being acquired by ARC.

Contact ARC for meeting location (Placerville area) and to sign up.

FREE: Donations encouraged.
