We have been invited on two days in July to make the most of the flowering season of water lilies and lotuses! Spend the day painting en plein air with fellow MAA members at this gorgeous water garden in Frederick County, just 40 minutes from Rockville. Join us on either or both days.

  • When: Tuesday, July 5 and Tuesday, July 19, 9 am-4 pm each day
  • About Lilypons: Lilypons Water Gardens is a fourth-generation-owned nature sanctuary with 250-acres of wetlands to explore and aquatic nursery with a complete selection of water gardening products. There are many nature trails throughout our property to paint, sketch, hike and take in the unique beauty of the landscape. There are natural ponds with different varieties of waterlilies, lotus, and bog plants that will inspire you. And you will also see different species of wildlife, including water birds, raptors, turtles, frogs, dragonflies and butterflies. More info.
