Deepening Your Connection with Nature Through Art
with Margaret Shipman
In this September workshop we will have all of the bounty of the early fall to draw from. The last of the flowers and veggies will be in our gardens as well as wildflowers like Goldenrod, Asters, Yarrow, and early fall leaves of the season will be all around us to meet and draw from.
With this class Margaret will guide students through her own art making process, which starts with selecting local plants, gathering information about medicinal uses and folklore of the selected plants, and starting an individual art project based on what is learned. The class will take place in a private Facebook group (we can add email and other social media forums if necessary) for assignments and discussion starting Sunday, September 13th and ending with a live video chat/studio class to finish up the week on Saturday, September 19th from 1 to 3 pm.
Students will be encouraged to work in their favorite mediums, including but not limited to oil, acrylic, watercolor, drawing, collage, and journaling.
Financial assistance is available.
