The Total Art Experience by M Theresa Brown

The dew on the grass was wet, the morning almost chilly, but Saturday, May 7 was our scheduled "Paint in the Garden" START (www.startart.com) class and we had a dozen people coming in at 10:00 am to learn or re-experience painting "Plein air" or from life outside at our studio.
