While the trails at Hoyt Arboretum remain open for visitors, many of the center’s programs and classes have been cancelled. To bring our community closer to nature from the safety of our homes, Hoyt Arboretum has started offering virtual classes.
Virtual nature journaling lets you explore your artistic side with a focus on different plants and flowers.
Each week, the instructor will bring a live plant or flower to display up close and lead participants through various styles of sketchbook drawings. Each class will also focus on demonstrating lettering and writing techniques that are fun and useful in keeping a nature journal.
Supplies you’ll need:
- Writing tool (pencil, pen or fine tip marker)
- Journal or white paper
- Watercolors are optional
The workshop will be taught 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 from 10-11 a.m.
The class is available on a sliding scale, $7-$13. Registration is available online. Once you sign up, you’ll receive the Zoom link to participate. Visit Hoyt Arboretum’s events calendar to register.
