Welcome to the new HOOT Website

Note from the President of HOOT…

Happy  New Year  2022!!! 

Though 2021 was a challenge, we were able to get back on track and hold our meetings and classes via Zoom.  Members have been returning to the HOOT office to attend but many are using Zoom.

We have just about completed our schedule of seminars and classes for 2022.  So far, most of the teachers are planning to be at our office for their 2-day seminars along with our Saturday classes after our meetings.  We will again offer our classes via Zoom for those who cannot make it to our office in Westerville, OH.  We have a wonderful slate of teachers for classes and are in the process of adding 3-4 more in the months we do not have regular meetings. So far we have 16 seminars and classes scheduled. These include classes using acrylics, oils, watercolor and mixed media.

We are excited to make it easier for you to register for our class offerings.   Registration forms can be completed online and with a click, emailed directly to us.

Please come back often and check our updates to our 2022 schedule.
