New Colored Pencil Drawing & Painting Workshop At Bonnet House

By Bonnet House Blog No Comments

When you live in and visit a place like South Florida, it can easily be overwhelming. With so many burgeoning plants and active wildlife during all four seasons, it can be challenging to capture everything with just a camera or cell phone. This is why we take the time to ensure that we provide our community and visitors with opportunities to expand how they can capture the beauty and feel of the world around them.

Drawing and painting can be excellent ways to capture the true essence and beauty of anything you want to remember. It can also be the perfect way to showcase concepts and images that only exist in your mind. To help people learn how to develop these skills, Bonnet House will be hosting a 4-week Colored Pencil Drawing & Painting Workshop on Saturdays, August 6th through 27th, 2022 from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm.

This 4-week workshop will be taught by the instructor, Galal Ramadan. Galal has written many articles published in Colored Pencil Art Magazines and has been featured in solo national and international exhibitions. He was born in Alexandria, Egypt, and now resides and teaches here in Florida.

This popular course will take place in our air-conditioned Island Theater, and is $160 for Bonnet House members, and $175 for non-members. We do our best to keep the class sizes small so that the instructor can ensure that all participants receive individualized attention, so be sure to register as soon as you are able.

We hope that you consider registering for our Colored Pencil Drawing & Painting Workshop this August. To learn more and register, click here, or call (954) 703-2606.
