Hortense Miller Garden to hold free children’s painting workshop 

Hortense Miller Garden is holding a free children’s art workshop, geared to youngsters 8-15 years old, who will learn to paint outside in the wild hillside garden with dramatic ocean and canyon vistas. Students will learn to paint seascapes using tempera paint as they create two seascapes: one realistic, one pop art.

The workshop takes place on Saturday, July 23 from 9:45 a.m.-12 p.m. Space is limited and reservations are required.
