DC1 -Take a Leaf from Nature: Sketch, journal and book-making inspired by the Gardens

Saturday November 11

1:00 PM  –  4:00 PM

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  

Fee: $45 per adult/child pair (includes all materials), $10 for each additional child
