Registrations Due April 6

The Hartman Rock Garden is offering a professionally-designed program to train people like you to give tours of this landmark art environment. We hope that you will join our volunteer team! Over three Saturday mornings sessions in April, you will learn the incredible story of Ben Hartman’s Historical Rock Garden and how it fits into the larger Visionary Art Environment world. We will explore the inspirations that motivated Ben to build the garden, the materials and techniques that he used, and the process that it took to restore the garden to its 1930s appearance. We will also go behind the scenes at the site to examine the molds and parts that Ben used to make his artistic creations and visit the nearby stream where he gathered much of his rock and stone. Upon completion of the program, you will have the opportunity to share your knowledge with visitors from around the globe. No prior experience needed. The time commitment is flexible and will vary month to month, likely ranging from one to six hours per month, so even people with busy schedules can find a way to contribute their talents!
