Young artist designs Summit County Garden Club poster

Special to the Daily

Kayla Fulkerson, age 9, of Keystone, was the artist chosen for this year’s Garden Club poster. She is a student of Caroline Gentling at Summit Cove Elementary School. Kayla’s watercolor painting of sunflowers was the culmination of her art class unit on the famous painter, Vincent Van Gogh. The students learned about him through a movie and books. They were then asked to do their version of one of his most famous paintings of sunflowers.

Kayla enjoys working in both watercolor and pastels. Some of her artistic inspiration has come from her visit to Monet’s gardens in Giverney outside of Paris with her family.

The poster with Kayla’s sunflower painting will appear all over the county soon to advertise the annual tour of Summit County private gardens held every July. Mark your calendars now for July 24. Tickets will be available at Neils Lunceford (Silverthorne location), Alpine Gardens, Summit Landscaping, the Summit County Community and Senior Center in Frisco, from Garden Club members or by mail: SCGC, PO Box 3591, Breckenridge, CO 80424 (mail orders must be received by July 17) Tickets are $10 if purchased in advance, or $15 the day of the event. The map and guide book for the tour will be available from 8:30-10:30 a.m. on July 24 at the Summit County Community and Senior Center. Tour goers will enjoy a continental breakfast before heading out on the self-guided tour.

This tour is put on by the Summit County Garden Club. Membership in the club is open to all full- and part-time residents of the county. Dues of $20 annually include one ticket to the tour.
