Painting with Plants with Everyone Outside at The Wadsworth Mansion (Outside)

Painting with Plants with Everyone Outside at The Wadsworth Mansion (Outside) In-Person

Back by popular demand! Everyone Outside and Russell Library staff are back doing this fun outdoor art project. Come and learn how to make your own brush and paints from common plants in our area and then use them to create your own painting. (If you have some flowers you want to try using, feel free to bring them along!)

We will be meeting by the Tennis Pavilion at the Wadsworth Mansion at Long Hill Estate (address is 421 Wadsworth Street in Middletown, Connecticut). The Pavilion is next to the large lawn in the back of the Mansion.

Parking will be at at Mercy High School, 1740 Randolph Road (closer to Tennis Pavilion, especially northwest portion). Handicapped parking and limited parking for those also attending the Music at the Mansion is available at Wadsworth Mansion (421 Wadsworth St).

We encourage attendees to bring a blanket and/or chairs to sit on, plus you can bring dinner and stay to hear the US Coast Guard Band perform at the Music at the Mansion series starting at 6:30!  http://www.wadsworthmansion.com/public-events/event-music-at-the-mansion/ 

For all ages!
