MAA member Lori Lankford restored a beautiful Victorian home and garden in Middletown, Maryland. At this time of year, it’s bursting with brightly colored dahlias and other flowers. Lori has graciously invited MAA member artists to spend a few hours in the garden painting or drawing.
When: We have three sessions available: August 27, 8 am-noon; September 17, 8 am-noon; or September 17, noon-4 pm.
Number of participants: Due to limited space, the sessions are for MAA members only. Each of the three sessions is open to eight members.
What to expect: The house is centrally located in Middletown, a small town in Frederick County approximately 35-40 minutes from Rockville. A very pretty and healthy garden, the space is generally in full sun, but there are two patio areas with shade. Cool and comfortable dress is recommended. MAA will provide cold drinks and snacks, and a lower-level restroom in the house is available. Fresh-cut dahlia flower arrangements may be available to purchase from Lori, too.
Cost: $7 per member. Includes drinks and snacks. Fee is nonrefundable (unless your date is cancelled because of weather); the fee is transferrable to another date of this activity, if available, or to another MAA member.
What to bring: All artmaking supplies and equipment; hat, sun protection, insect repellent.
Address & Parking Info: Will be provided to registrants in your confirmation letter. If you're interested in arranging a carpool or getting a ride, please post a message on our members-only Facebook group.
Rain date: Because of limited windows of time, if the weather is poor, the session will be cancelled altogether. Your fee will be refunded unless you want to transfer it to an open spot on another of the other dates, if available.
