About This Activity


This program is closed to further registration.

Spring is a time of great natural beauty. This is especially evident throughout the woodlands of Coral Woods. Join us for an afternoon of outdoor exploration and artistic activities centered around the spring wildflowers of Coral Woods. Hike the woodland and witness local plein air artists (a French expression referring to painting "in the open air") along the trails capturing the fleeting beauty of the native spring wildflowers. Previously completed artwork will be for sale throughout the day. Works completed that day will be for sale on site 3:00 - 4:00 p.m.
