Vallarta Botanical Gardens Bird Sketching Workshops

Taught by Christine Elder, March 5-6, 2016. Noon-4 pm

I’m pleased to announce that I’ll  be returning to Mexico for the Vallarta Bird Festival held at the  Vallarta Botanical Gardens to teach bird sketching workshops on March 5th and 6th from noon-4 pm. The gardens are a fabulous place for this workshop with its many acres of native plants set in a tropical paradise and serenaded by the rushing water of  a wild river running in the canyon below.
