Mettawa Manor and the Kurtis Conservation Foundation (KCF) has invited the Chicago Botanic Garden to offer courses set on the extensive grounds of the Foundation and at Mettawa Manor and Gardens. Built in 1927 and now the part-time residence of Bill Kurtis and Donna LaPietra, KCF and Mettawa Manor offers 75 acres of land with formal gardens, woodlands, ponds and prairie. Photo students are actually spoiled-for-choice of subjects due to the ponds, vegetable and flower gardens in addition to the manor house itself. What an honor it is to again have been selected as one of only 5 courses to be offered at this dramatic setting!
The Autumn Photo Workshop at Mettawa Manor is a one-day offering, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m on Wednesday, October 2. Lunch is included in the registration fee. Register early because class enrollment is limited to 10 students.
A map to Mettawa Manor will be sent to registered students in advance of the class.
