A Weekend of Drawing and Painting En Plein Air

Happy February!

Our next event is a new one, and one that is very exciting for us. March 19th and 20th we are hosting an all inclusive weekend of access to White Hills Farm for plein air drawing and painting.

The tradition of “carrying the easel outside” is ages old and will be the weekend's focus. From the 1890s original home to the rural Georgia Sandhills woodlands, we have a hilltop location that speaks “Farmhouse South.”

Preregistration is required. Cost is $25 per person. This is all inclusive. Traditionally, our class spots fill quickly. Call us at 706-595-5081 or email us at whitehillsfarm@gmail.com to reserve your place.
Here are the particulars!

Sitting on the porch that is the definition of home-grown comfort, Amy brought out a dish of pecans to snack on with our lavender iced tea. The pecans were sweet with a hint of salt and ... smoked! (Patrick throws a lot of stuff on the grill and in the smoker and the results are always spectacular.) The pecans were like heaven.

Between the lavender everywhere, the porch, the view, the company, and the pecans, we might just as well have been in heaven.

You'll want to go back again and again!

Among the gardens and 100-year-old farm house is a picturesque red barn where Amy and Patrick not only sell their merchandise but also entertain and/or put on workshops. I have had the pleasure of attending several of these events ranging from cookie making, to lavender harvesting and arranging, to yoga classes.

I am always looking for what they have available because once you experience the sheer beauty and peaceful feel of White Hills Farm you too will want to go back again and again.

For me, it's a place tied to fond memories

White Hills Farm is the perfect backdrop for any occasion -- it has this way of enveloping and elevating meaningful celebrations. For me, it's a place tied to fond memories and an eagerness to return. Year round, its something to behold, a slice of heaven run by the best of people.
