Art in the Meadow (For Kids)
Dates: July 19-23, 2021
Course Description: Join us for a week-long (half-day) camp exploring the incredible variety of plant life in a pollinator meadow and the fragile, yet incredibly important ecosystem it supports. Our adventures will be part scientific, part artistic, and part experimental. We’ll learn the basics of botanical watercolor painting and cyanotype printmaking while digging deeper into the possibilities the plants have to offer from making our own dyes to identifying important native pollinators and other plant secrets!
Cost: $225 members / $250 non-members
Instructor: Erin Rice
Materials: Students must supply their own watercolor set and brushes. We recommend a pan set of 12 colors. Crayola sets are OK, but brands like Sakura-Koi, Faber-Castell or Winsor Newton produce much better quality paints. If you plan to use the paints again it is worth spending more for a quality set. The pan set allows you to conveniently carry the paints outdoors and mix your paints directly in the pan. We will provide paper, as well as any other supplies that are needed.
The class will be held outdoors as much as possible. We ask that students wear a mask while indoors
