The Artist In You!

On-site Optional Activity
Cost: $75
Time: 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Regardless of their level of ability with a brush, guests will be amazed and gratified by their artistic accomplishment. They will join literally hundreds of others who have taken home a new sense of pleasure and desire to be master of their life after participating in this painting class. Guests will learn and apply the creative system to their life by eliminating the “reactive” response and embracing the “creative” response to many aspects of their lives through color and design with a paint brush. Includes a glass of wine.

Hand Painted Silk Scarf Art

On-site Optional Activityz
Cost: $75
Time: 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Everyone will love this exotic art form! The pure white scarf comes pre-outlined with a fashionable scarf design (six from which to choose) and it already hand hemmed. Guest create their masterpiece on a wooden painting frame, mix their favorite colors, apply the special dyes which achieve lovely watercolor effects on the silk. The inks are permanently set after the scarf is ironed when it is dried. Guests will be able to take home a beautiful 6’ scarf and all the painting supplies to create other projects on their own. Includes a glass of wine.

So it’s your first time at an RHS Convention or you had the “guts” to come all by yourself! We are so impressed with you! You’ll be the hit at this gathering as we celebrate with you and make sure you get a personal introduction to the other “gutsy gals” and “first timers” who have made their way to Palm Desert before the Convention actually starts! Come to get tips on how to make the best of your convention experience!

Are you a “seasoned RHS convention goer”? We welcome you to come and “adopt” a new Sister and make sure she’s welcomed properly. You may have come alone, but from this moment forward you’ll be surrounded by Sisters!

The Society’s Members who are traveling from countries outside of the US are welcome to join Queen Lady Bug, Debra Granich for a special gathering and official photo session.
