To kick off Open Farm Days 2017 this year we decided to host Paint Night in the Orchard. Approaching our orchard is a large grassy field, an area we usually use for wide games with our family and friends. We set up in the corner of that field, up against a row of columnar birch trees, lit up with white Christmas lights. It was magical. The tables were set with linens and we drank from fine crystal. It was country meets cultured!
The beautiful ladies from Art Tree Studio got us all going and did a miraculous job of instilling confidence into each one, convincing us that we could actually do this, and they were right! Their instructions and demonstrations were clear, and thorough. They were available to answer any and all questions, and made us feel successful in our project.
