Description:

Horsford Gardens and Nursery in Charlotte, Vermont is welcoming artists to teach their own custom classes in its beautiful outdoor setting.

This summer-long program will feature a variety of artists and art media. Artists can offer their participants a memorable experience through single sessions, or multiple sessions over time. Classes or workshops are surrounded by a variety of plants, maintained display gardens, and nursery growing fields. There are plenty of mature trees, ever-blooming gardens, and historic structures to inspire art workshops.

Courses should be conducive and flexible to working outdoors. There are naturally shaded, wooded and sunny lawn areas for groups to work peacefully in nature. Juried artists will schedule and run their classes independently from Horsford, yet be promoted through the “Art in the Garden” series.

Examples of concepts of workshops – by no means limited to the following:
Botanical Illustration, Watercolor Painting, Photography, Basket weaving, Clay hand-building, Poetry, Cartoon & Comic Drawing, Oil Painting, Wood Block Print, Herbal & Wellness Care, Plein Air Painting.

Complete information on this call to artists, and a short application to lead a course are available at www.horsfordnursery.com. An optional walkthrough of the nursery will take place on April 8, 2019 at 10 AM so artists can determine if their courses can be lead at the nursery comfortably. Applications are due April 14, 2019. The team at Horsford’s will notify artists if their courses are selected by April 21, 2019.
