A Girl with a Watering Can,1876, Renoir

Throughout history, flowers and gardens have been favorite subjects of artists.  Join us on a tour as we visit the homes and gardens of ten artists whose celebratory paintings of flowers are as varied as the artists themselves.  This talk will help us appreciate each artist’s relationship with nature and remind us of how gardens provide us with tranquility and give us a sense of joy.

Before moving to Tucson, Jaye-Lynn was an educator in Traverse City, Michigan.  She holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education and a Master of Arts in Humanities.  She taught middle school students, facilitated teacher workshops, and wrote curriculum guides for Traverse City’s local museum and an outdoor sculpture park in Northern Michigan.  She was also a teacher consultant for the Michigan Geographic Alliance.  Upon retirement, Jaye-Lynn and her husband moved to Tucson, where she continued her interest in the arts by training as a docent for the Tucson Museum of Art.  Offering tours at the Tucson Museum of Art allows her to continue her passion for learning and interacting with others who share a love of the arts.
