Participants should meet at the large umbrella on The Green. All painting supplies are provided by the museum, and reservations are not required. Ages six and up with caregiver onsite.
Free. No reservations required.
When Lulie Crawford was eight years old, she came to the Yampa Valley in 1876 with her family from Missouri. She loved to be outside exploring and finding wildflowers. From these experiences, Lulie developed a love of the natural beauty of the Steamboat Springs area and its wildflowers, which she captured in her watercolor paintings.
