In collaboration with Porter County Aging and Community Services and with funding from Porter Health, Taltree will offer a very special monthly art program through the third Tuesday of each month through October. Art instructors from South Shore Arts will conduct art classes based on artists and their styles throughout history. Participants will leave each session with an 11” x 14” work on paper and a new understanding of the featured artist. Classes will be held in Taltree’s Meyer Memorial Pavilion but will be moved indoors if the weather is bad. South Shore Arts will provide art supplies necessary to complete the project during class. The program is free for those aged 50 and better. For information and reservations, call (219) 462-0025. All classes are from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. in the Meyer Memorial Pavilion. July 20 – Klimt (pattern in nature), Aug. 17 Monet (water lilies), Sept. 21 – Van Gogh (sunflowers), Oct. 19 -O’Keefe. Taltree is located at 450 West 100 North, Valparaiso, IN. Admission to the grounds is $5 for guests; free for Taltree members and children under 5. For more information, visit www.taltree.org, call (219) 462-0025 or e-mail info@taltree.org. Taltree Arboretum & Gardens, located south of U.S. 30 between Merrillville and Valparaiso, Indiana, is a 360-acre reserve of formal gardens, woodlands, wetlands, and prairies. From hiking the 3+ miles of trails to attending an outdoor concert or special event, visitors have enjoyed Taltree’s quiet beauty interspersed with friendly festivity since 1999. Themed displays include the Hitz Family Rose Garden, Native Plant Garden, Oak Islands, and coming in 2011, the Taltree Railway Garden.
