April Hill Conservation and Education Center is proud to offer ongoing workshops and classes for the community! Along with knowledgeable guests and Greenagers staff, our workshops cover a myriad of topics, all with the primary goal of teaching important skills, and connecting our community through food, farming and friends.

We acknowledge the importance of outdoor exploration during this time-however, we also adhere to guidelines of the CDC and State of Massachusetts. All events and workshops will be held outdoors. Masks and social distancing are required.

Art workshop series

Greenagers is proud to have Tia Maggio leading an exciting art workshop series at April Hill! Come and learn creative painting and drawing techniques- this series works for artists at every level. Tia pulls her inspiration from nature as “it is the only thing that really makes sense to me – wild sunsets, storms, brambles and branches.” Once described as a tonalist, she describes herself as a nature based expressionist. Her pastels of sloping Piedmont hills and skies have been exhibited locally in Northern Virginia and New York City, and are in private collections in the U.S., Italy, Southern France, and most recently, Guatemala. Materials provided, space is limited- please RSVP to email hidden; JavaScript is required

$35 for each class or all three classes for $100
