July 11 - July 12
New summer date.
Art by Dorota Haber-Lehigh
Connect with nature through careful observation and study. This workshop will combine techniques for designing and drawing in an ethnobotanical sketchbook: learn about our local native plants and how indigenous peoples utilized them. We’ll begin with loose, meditative sketching exercises, then practice creating a personal sketchbook page that blends sketches, ethnobotanical notes and reflections. Finally, we will create a finished portrait of a selected plant using colored pencils on walnut ink-stained paper.
