Learn to translate the grandeur of a summer day onto paper, with artist Dan Tilstra, as he shares his experience and encourages you in the creation of a watercolor memory of this inspirational day. As sunbeams of light dance through the air, the Valley’s meadows and cliffs come alive with color and sound.

There is no better way to connect with Yosemite than to join us for a day painting in the sunshine.
