by Deb Shaw
BAGSC member Tania Marien, ArtPlantae, will be teaching “Learning through Natural Science Illustration: Tree Life Cycle” at the Environmental Nature Center (ENC) in Newport Beach, CA on Saturday, October 8, 2011 from 10 – 11 am.
Children ages 5 and 6 (and their parents) will learn what happens to a tree after it falls to the ground during a reading of “A Log’s Life”, by Wendy Pfeffer. They will then learn about the amazing paper sculptures used to illustrate the book, created by artist and natural science illustrator Robin Brickman, before creating their own paper sculptures of Fall leaves.
Fee: $12 per child, ages 5 – 6. Art supplies will be provided. Call the ENC at 949.645.8489 to reserve a space, or email Lori Whalen at the ENC. Reservations are required. The ENC is located at: 1601 16th Street, Newport Beach, CA 92663.
