What a pleasure to spend the afternoon learning about botany, history, and watercolor painting from an incredible artist. I highly recommend any level of artist try one of her classes around town. We also had a delicious lunch served from the outdoor kitchen and wood fired oven at Long Table Farm! It was an incredible class


"An incredible class"


I would give the hike and painting five stars! My favorite part of the hike was learning about all the different types of edible plants. Ms. Sabrena knew so much about the park and all the plants there. I thought I knew a lot about edible plants, but she taught me so much! I really liked that I got to pick what I painted. I am not really a painter but Ms. Sabrena was really nice and helped me learn new techniques. I was glad we tried this.


"I'm not really a painter, but..."


Had such a great time being shown Telluride and told about all it’s deep history by Sabrena! Painting was a great time too I hadn’t sat down and tried to do anything artistic in 8 years. It was great to have such a positive and skilled teacher to back me up through the process. The spark of creativity I gained through this experience is definitely something I’ll be carrying with me for years to come!


"Something I’ll be carrying with me for years"


This mini painting adventure was a blast. Not only did Sabrena provide wonderful materials for our use (beautifully hand-made painting boxes that make painting plain air SO much easier!) but she also showed us how chalk full of history she is!
