Visit Bayou Bend during open-sketching hours, when guests are invited to explore the grounds of Bayou Bend’s 14-acre estate. Let the beauty of the natural woodlands and formal gardens inspire your drawings. Paper, clipboards, and pencils are provided. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own campstools.

Admission to the gardens is $7.50 for adults; $6 for seniors and students; and $5 for ages 1018. Children 9 and younger are admitted free.
