Take a Leaf from Nature: Sketch, journal and book-making inspired by the Gardens

When: Sat., Nov. 11, 1-4 p.m. 2017

Young artists will learn basic nature illustration skills appropriate for their ages through a series of on-site and still life sketch activities, chronicle a specific natural scene, plant or insect they see in the Gardens with a journal entry and then, using simple printmaking techniques, make leaf-printed cloth covers for a handmade nature journal modeled upon Japanese accordion fold books. Parents will learn alongside their child, and take away other nature activities to try at home. Age range: 8-12 years. Adult must accompany a child

Price: $45 per adult/child pair
