There’s no better way to spend a weekend then maxin’ and relaxin’ amongst beautiful art, plants, and people while learning printmaking, papermaking and sketching.  Especially when it’s free of cost, perfect weather, and centrally located.  Just sayin’….

Fall Into Art

In conjunction with Desert Garden Community Day the Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Desert wants you to fall in love with our garden by falling into art. Experience a fun-filled day in the Faye Sarkowsky Sculpture Garden learning about the plants from a volunteer, or drawing the beautiful environment with a local artist. Make your own paper with natural resources and experiment with printmaking in the Annette Bloch Education Wing. Afterwards, take a break from the sunshine and enjoy the exhibition Across Dimensions: Graphics and Sculpture from the Permanent Collection inside The Galen. 

Fall Into Art and Desert Garden Community Day are a collaboration of the Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Desert and Desert Horticulture Society of the Coachella Valley.
