Michigan City’s elegant Barker Mansion gardens will be the setting for a Mother’s Day painting class on Saturday, May 12. Artist Esther Lundmark of Lundmark Studios will facilitate the class. No experience is necessary; Lundmark will guide students step-by-step as they complete a painting featuring a teacup. Two sessions will be held, 10 am and 2 pm Central Time, and space is very limited. Cost is $35 per youth and $45 per adult, ages 18+. Minimum age requirement is eight years old. Cookies, lemonade, and Barker Mansion-blend tea will be served during the event. Tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite or by calling the mansion at (219) 873-1520 ext. 5.
