Painting Class given by Paul Valdez

Last week, Tagawa Nursery hosted a painting class given Paul Valdez, local artist and instructor. It was a great afternoon with funny, entertaining ladies who each chose a different subject to paint. We are a diverse group of painters/artists, some more talented than others (I'm in the latter category...but I try hard) and therefore we are a constant challenge to our teacher. Valdez gently corrects our work during critique session, and constantly encourages us to do better.  He offers water color and oil painting classes at his studio, and also at Heritage Eagle Bend, Aurora.

Looking for an unusual idea for a girl's birthday party? Why not consider having a Fairy Party at Tagawa Nursery. In fact there are so many classes and ideas...it's best to check their site. I particularly enjoyed the Fairy Garden - very creative and enchanting!
