University City Partners is excited to announce the In The Gardens series, a fun, affordable, and unique experience that welcomes participants to explore arts and wellness in the serene surroundings of the UNC Charlotte Botanical Gardens.
Kicking things off on April 15 is University City-based artist Janeva Tyree who will guide you with En Plein Air, a beginner- and intermediate-level painting experience that encourages participants to create works based on the life they see in the gardens. All supplies will be provided, and you will leave with a piece of art you will have fun creating.
