Announcing Sketching Stories—our new guided drawing series where observation of our present and reflecting on our past come together. Join us May 25th from 1-3pm for our first session! In this drawing class, you will be guided through an observational, or life drawing of real artifacts from Varner Hogg Plantation and discover the real stories of the people who used them. This program is open to absolute beginners and more experienced artists hoping to hone their drawing skills.

In this class, we will get an up-close look at real artifacts cowboys would have used and uncover the story of Hal Fields. From cowboy to caretaker, Hal lived and worked at “Varner” when it was owned by the Hogg family until it became a historic site in 1958!

All materials will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own sketchbook and drawing tools if you prefer. 

This event is free with your $10 admission to the site. (Seniors, veterans, teachers & first responders' admission is $8) This class is recommended for adults and children over 12. Children under 12 must be accompanied by a guardian.
