Adult Art Workshop: Botanical Journaling

SATURDAY, JUNE 4

Workshop Description

In this free, three-hour workshop, participants will explore the intersection of art and science! Botany and Art have a long history together in the form of illustrated guides and journals. It is a great time of year to appreciate the scope of trees, flowering plants, grasses & shrubs our area has to offer. In this workshop, participants will make a handmade journal to record observations and thoughts on plants, flowers, & trees. In addition, you will:

  • Learn 2 – 3 journal structures
  • Learn quick, easy methods to make images of plants for your journal
  • Learn a little bit of basic botany

If you have plant material you have collected, feel free to bring it in. If not, we will have plenty available for you to reference.  Also, feel free to bring any personal collage elements you may want to use in your journal.  

All materials will be supplied.
