Day-of-Art-800-3On Saturday, February 27 from 10 AM – 4PM

Roger’s Gardens is proud to present the 4th Annual “Day of Art.” This event hosts 50 talented artists to paint and draw in the Gardens for the day, representing their creative interpretation of Roger’s Gardens. And the best part is that guests can observe them painting, attend two excellent workshops and observe the Awards Ceremony too!

A painting by each of the participating artists will be on display and available to the public for purchase. We will be judging the 50 original artworks and presenting awards and recognitions. Also guests have the opportunity to be an artist for the day by joining us at our scheduled workshops and demonstrations. For the schedule of events, see below or visit the Art Gallery page at .



Printmaking Workshop: Printing Posies and Plants 10 AM – 1 PM

Location: Amphitheater

Local artists Sheryl Seltzer and Carol Kreider will teach you to create

your own art print inspired by the beautiful flowers and plants of the

gardens. Guests will draw and transfer to a small relief plate as the

instructors ink the plate and the guests “pull” their own print! This is a

rewarding art project for all skills and ages. Instructor Sheryl Seltzer

has a studio in Laguna Beach and teaches at Concordia University.


Awards Ceremony 12 PM

Location: Outdoor Living

Ten awards of excellence will be presented to the 50 participating

artists. These artists will be recognized for their outstanding

inspirations and interpretations of Roger’s Gardens through their

artworks. The judge is Gil Dellinger, a retired professor of art of the

University of the Pacific, Signature Member of The Pastel Society of

America, California Art Club, and PAPA, Plein Air Painters of America.


Drawing Workshop: Journal your Garden through Art / Drawing

Leaves and Flowers in the Garden 2 PM – 3:30 PM

Location: Amphitheater

Botanical Artists Guild of Southern California. They have taught and
