August News Update


Dear Community,

Finally, August is here and we want to tell you what’s happening through the Hoffman.

Online offerings

  • Visual artists will want to know Melissa Young is teaching another of her very popular Sketchbook Journaling Classes on August 13 from 12-3 via ZOOM. Returning watercolor instructor Carolyn Gates will teach a two-day class in exploring color via ZOOM August 22 and 23. Get out your brushes and take advantage of this delicious opportunity to immerse yourself in the joy of creating.

In person activities

  • The gallery is open! We have a great show for you, so bring your mask and your appreciation for colorful vivid art that will lift your spirit. Through August the gallery is featuring Dorothy Holmes Mohler, Lloyd Lindley II, and Bev Cordova.

We have offerings outdoors.

  • Wonder Garden Walk-throughs led by garden curator Ketzel Levine take place Wednesdays (space limited, must reserve). The plant collection and artful combinations will seed your imagination for a colorful coastal garden.
  • Art of Aging Conversations in the Wonder Garden scheduled on Tuesdays at noon for those yearning to connect over interesting questions. Enjoy spaced-out friendship over your brown bag lunch in the garden (must reserve).

Find details for every offering through the tiles in this newsletter.

Our fundraising challenge ends on a high note thanks to so many generous arts supporters. Thank you – each and every one.
