Painting and Poetry

Location: Wander Joshua Tree

Pricing: $300 for up to 4 guest, $50 each add'l guest

Length: 1.5 hours
Description: Set against the beautiful backdrop of Wander Joshua Tree, this one-and-a-half-hour workshop aims to help you get in touch with multiple parts of your creative side. In the writing portion of the workshop, we'll draw inspiration from the desert landscape and its metaphors and work on translating our abstract ideas into concrete terms. We'll then explore watercolor techniques and create our own desert landscape paintings, and eventually combine the two mediums for a special memento from your stay. 

Details: This workshop is inspired by Alex's popular poetry and painting project, Desert Minis. The workshop includes all materials as well as a selection of wine and/or kombucha from local purveyors.
