Like the previous owners of the Bonnet House estate, our team is extremely passionate about creating art and teaching others about art. This is why we often host classes and programs geared towards helping students learn particular techniques and styles for creating works of art. Our watercolor and calligraphy workshops, for example, are some of our most popular and beloved classes that we host here at Bonnet House.

In addition to watercolor and calligraphy, Bonnet House also hosts classes for those interested in mastering colored pencil drawing and painting. In fact, we are just beginning our six-week workshop for colored pencil drawing and painting.
