The Hoffman Center for the Arts is offering monthly botanical drawing classes led by Seaside artist Dorota Haber-Lehigh. This series kicks off Saturday, January 9, with a focus on winter branches.

This series changes monthly with a new subject, demonstrations, and techniques. All sessions are held on the second Saturday of each month at the same time for $45.00 each. The first three sessions are now available for registration.
