While the trails at Hoyt Arboretum remain open for visitors (so long as you abide by the CDC’s trail user social distancing recommendations), the center’s programs and classes have been cancelled. To bring our community closure to nature from the safety of our homes, Hoyt Arboretum has started a new virtual class.
Virtual nature journaling lets you explore your artistic side with a focus on the springtime blooms in our neighborhoods.
You’ll get your choice or tulip, daffodil, camellia or other flower from your natural surroundings or have a photo for reference. You will create at least three different styles of sketchbook drawings using your observational skills.
Supplies you’ll need are a writing tool (pencil, pen or fine tip marker), journal or white paper. Watercolors are optional.
The workshop will be taught by Elizabeth Higgins over Zoom. Instructions and the link to the Zoom meeting will be sent out to attendees before the workshop time.
Classes are taking place every Wednesday in July from 10-11 a.m.
The class is available on a sliding scale, $5-$11. Registration is available online. Once you sign up, you’ll receive the Zoom link to participate. Visit Hoyt Arboretum’s events calendar to register.
