Lenna Frances Keefer, artist and facilitator, leads an afterschool program for children ages 7 to 12. These dates are the fall-themed workshop in an ongoing series of seasonal workshops for children's art instruction that will allow children to produce their own botanical journal. The fall sessions will focus on root structure, acorn and hickory nut sketches and early colored deciduous leaves. Interdisciplinary historical, plant lore, Native American plant culture, basic science skills and tree identification will be taught alongside botanical drawing; for information, visit www.jmu.edu/arboretum or call (540) 568-3194; $35 fee includes sketch journal and pencil.
