At Bonnet House Museum & Gardens, our team does everything they can to ensure that Bonnet House is enjoyable and educational for all age groups. Whether you’re an elementary school student excited to go on an adventure through our tropical gardens, or a seasoned artist hoping to find inspiration for your next piece, there is surely something for everyone to enjoy at Bonnet House. This Spring season is no exception, and we couldn’t be happier to announce upcoming drawing classes, a fascinating speaker series, the Spring Nourishment for the Soul events, and special admission rates for Family Day.

Starting this March, we are excited to announce two upcoming drawing classes for intermediate and advanced students. The first class will take place on Saturday, March 9th from 9:30am-12:30pm and will teach students how to create a colorful bird, along with various shading and line drawing techniques. This class will be hosted by award-winning artist and Bonnet House Instructor, Galal Ramadam in our air-conditioned Island Theatre.

The second drawing class will take place on Saturday, March 16th from 9:30am-3:30pm and will cover advanced portrait drawing. In this class, students will learn how to create realistic skin tones, master how to “whisper” and “scream” with colored pencils, understand how to simplify without losing realism, gain confidence in their skills, and much more. This course will also be taught by award-winning artist and Bonnet House Instructor, Galal Ramadam in our air-conditioned Island Theatre.

Additionally, on March 11th Bonnet House will be continuing our popular speaker series with Clare Vickery. Founder of Grace Arts Gallery, Clare Vickery will be discussing the interesting history of Florida’s Saltwater Railroad. This discussion will have a particular emphasis on the women who influenced its creation and history. This event is free for members, and $5 for non-members, and registration is required by 2:30 on March 8th.

We have added a new event this spring which includes mindfulness and live music, Spring Nourishment for the Soul: Mindful Movement w/ Live Sacred Music. Join us on Wednesday, March 20th from 6:30-8:30pm for an enchanting spring equinox evening. Immerse yourself in a transformative experience filled with mindful movement, meditation, and a live sacred music concert.

To wrap up the month of March, we are also excited to announce that we will be offering free admission to kids 13 and under, and Broward County school teachers (with ID) on March 23rd. During this special Family Fun Day , kids and families will not only have the opportunity to explore the historic estate and gardens, but also enjoy a free classical concert presented by the Gold Coast Youth Orchestra, and even meet Bonnet House reenactors in each room!
