It may not feel like it here in sunny Fort Lauderdale, but Fall is right around the corner, and that means that we will be kicking off some exciting new classes here at Bonnet House Museum & Gardens! This fall we will begin hosting our popular Birding Classes, in addition to a Watercolor Workshop, and even a series of Forest Bathing classes. These courses are sure to be not only interesting and educational but fun and enjoyable.

Beginning on October 3rd, Bonnet House will host a Bird class for both adults and children. These 3-hour courses will help you become a better Bird Sleuth and help you discover the wonderful world of birds! You’ll get to learn the basics of how to identify common birds through a variety of strategies while you explore our vast gardens. Classes for adults will take place on Sunday, October 3rd, January 9th, and March 6th. Children between the ages of 8 and 12 will also have the opportunity to improve their birding skills on Saturday, February 12th. Courses are $20 for our members and $25 for non-members. You can register for these exciting classes by calling 954-703-2606, or clicking here!

At the end of October, Bonnet House will also host our extremely popular Watercolor Mini-Workshop. This workshop will be themed around ‘ Tropical Leaves,’ and will help advance your skills in various techniques such as wet-on-wet painting, glazing, direct painting, and masking fluid. As the famous art historian and art critic, John Ruskin once said, “If you can paint a leaf, you can paint the world.” This fascinating workshop will take place on October 23rd from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm. Registration is $70 for our members and $80 for non-members. You can register for this workshop by calling 954-703-2606, or clicking here!

Due to the immense popularity of these classes, we will be offering them again on Sunday, October 24th, November 28th, December 19th, January 23rd, and February 27th. These classes will allow you to listen to the sounds and enjoy the sights of nature around you. You’ll have the opportunity to tune out the world for two special hours while you relax with nature. These classes will take place from 10 am to 12 pm and are $20 for our members and $25 for non-members. You can register for these classes by calling 954-703-2606, or clicking here!
