Click here to register now.

Calling all Art Adventurers! Engage with the natural world by experimenting with a variety of media and techniques. These monthly classes are appropriate for all ability and experience levels and promote enjoyment over perfection. Enjoy playing with art materials, learning new processes and having fun with our instructor’s open-ended, judgment-free style of art-making! Registration includes Garden admission for the day—we encourage you to explore the Garden before class for inspiration.

Discover the possibilities of altered books — an earth-friendly art approach that focuses on creative reuse, upcycling and reimagining materials! Bring a retired book to transform into a collection of expressive botanical artworks. We encourage you to register for multiple classes and bring the same book to continue altering. In July, paint in your book to reinterpret text into original poetry and more.
