Tania Marien, ArtPlantae, has scheduled a series of workshops at the Fullerton Arboretum, called “InterpretPlants.” These workshops are scheduled for October 2014 through May 2015, and highlight the Arboretum’s 26-acre oasis and vast plant collections and community programs on the sprawling campus of California State University, Fullerton.
The first two workshops will be a Farmer’s Market Guide to Plants, at the Fullerton Arboretum at CSU Fullerton, Wednesday, October 29, 2014 (1-4 pm) and Saturday, November 1, 2014 (10 am – 1 pm) $28 members, $35 non-members (fee includes most of the required art supplies) Limit: 12
Participants will create their own, personalized farmer’s market guide to locally grown food. Sketch the harvest, create printed images reminiscent of woodcut images in old herbals and learn about the botany of food while documenting the Fall harvest at the Arboretum’s Farm Stand. Create your own artwork to use on recipe cards, notecards, food labels or wherever you like!
Future workshops include:
Pollination Ecology for Young Naturalists
History of Botanical Illustration
Discover the Arboretum Potting Shed
A Vistor’s Guide to the Cactus Garden
Farmer’s Market Guide to Plants
A Visitor’s Guide to the Palm Garden
