‘Painting in the Garden’ workshop


Join watercolor artist Lynn Hoeft for a late-morning painting class in the West Tisbury library garden on Saturday, June 9, from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. All mediums are welcome, and participants are asked to bring their own painting or drawing supplies. The artist will do a brief watercolor demonstration at the beginning of the class, focusing on flowers.

A lifelong painter, Lynn Hoeft has been on the Vineyard since 1971, with brief stints away in California, New York, and Vermont. Lynn’s watercolors frequently include shells, stones, and other bits and pieces from the beach. She sometimes adds lace patterns, historic photographs, kitchen tools, and game pieces, along with leaves, seeds, and berries. Whether she’s walking around town, through the woods, or at the beach, she’s always on the lookout for moss, shells, and feathers to add to her next painting.

Sign-up is required. A materials list is available at the library and at westtisburylibrary.org. The class is free and open to the public. A rain date is planned for Saturday, June 16.
