Plein Air Exploration at Sakonnet Garden (Spring Session)

Join Whiteline Block Printing Instructor Kathrine Lovell for 1 or 2 sessions at the magical Sakonnet Gardens. You bring your drawing and painting tools, a folding chair or stool, and create for a few hours. After a break for lunch, join everyone for a group critique and discussion.  Be prepared for sunny days, bring water to stay hydrated, and bring a lunch. Directions are sent once you are enrolled in the course. Look here for more about the garden.

About Sakonnet Garden

Sakonnet is a secret garden embedded within a native coastal fields landscape. At the diminutive scale of a cottage garden, it is conceived as an intimate place to explore, with multiple paths leading one onward to unexpected experiences.

Sakonnet began in the mid 1970’s as a small clearing deep within a natural tangle of Autumn Olives, Oriental Bittersweet and local Arrowwood Viburnums. Now larger than an acre, its labyrinth of spaces are carved organically out of the original thicket. Each outdoor room reflects the owner’s ongoing experiments with lighting, space, color mixing, collecting and growing wonderful plants.
