About the Event
Participants 18 years and older are invited to bring their art supplies for a day of exploration and creating at the beautiful Lundell Farms in North Muskegon (https://www.lundellfarms.com). Participants will start the day at 10am with a greeting from owner Lori Lundell followed by a demonstration by artist MJ Ernst: the master of the quick sketch and member of urban sketchers http://www.urbansketchers.org/.
