Workshop Overview

We will explore mixed-media painting and camera-less photography techniques to create contemporary botanical art in conversation with local ecology. We will explore and forage our surroundings, then create earthy yet ethereal abstractions using botanical forms, cyanotype photochemistry, natural dyes and acrylic paint. We will challenge our preconceptions and incorporate improvisation into our art practice along the way. While participants may leave with finished work, the focus of this workshop will be on experimenting with new techniques and creative approaches.
