Children's Nature Workshop
Tue, 5 Nov 2013 4:00 PM - Thu, 7 Nov 2013 6:00 PM
4-6 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday
Edith J. Carrier Arboretum
Artist Lenna Frances Keefer leads the workshop for children ages 7 to 12. The fall-themed workshop in an ongoing series of seasonal workshops for children’s art instruction allows children to produce their own botanical journal. The sessions focus on root structures, acorn and hickory nut sketches and colored deciduous leaves. Interdisciplinary historical, plant lore, Native American plant culture, basic science skills and tree identification will be taught alongside botanical drawing.
This workshop will continue next into a winter session for children who can continue their journals in January with a winter bare twig and dormant woody plant botanicals section.
A $35 fee for the November section includes sketch journal and pencil.
