Natural art by Stephen Batiz, natural photos by Rachel Alban.
As the days get shorter and colder, explore the connections between nature, creativity, and mindfulness in this hands on artmaking workshop. All ages and families are welcome.
Participants are invited to gather materials in advance of this workshop. Take a nature walk, and gather items that appeal to you. Even if you live in the city, there are natural objects to be found when you look closely. Pick up items that catch your eye, even if you aren’t sure why they attracted you. You might find stones, sticks, leaves, seeds, pods, flower petals, shells, acorns, pinecones – even sand or dirt. If a nature walk is not possible, look around your home for natural materials such as leaves and soil from houseplants, shells, or materials to repurpose such as bottle caps. RSVP required. Zoom details will be sent via email confirmation.
Main art supplies:
natural materials you have gathered
Paper (preferably cardstock or watercolor paper if available)
Drawing materials: pencil, pen, or markers
