This ARTicipation workshop will explore using natural materials to create an assemblage landscape painting. Personal expression of all levels will be encouraged to create a work of art that could be either abstract or realistic based on our topic Gardenscapes.
This event corresponds with ARTscapades: Gardenscapes: From Vista to Vase on April 17th. The lecture looks at how gardens and flowers played an important role in the works of artists throughout history-- we strongly encourage all attendees to attend the Artscapades lecture before the ARTicipation workshop.
