Use art to hone your observation skills and express yourself! Art can communicate everything from how you are feeling to the close relationship between a caterpillar and its host plant. We’ll explore habitats, uncover wildlife and identify plants while learning about art and making our own. Each workshop will use photography and other media, including drawing, painting and collage. Join the full series or sign up for individual workshops. Bring your own digital camera; any kind is great, from cell phones to DSLRs. All other materials provided. Classes will include time to investigate the garden, make connections, create art and share work with the group. This class will explore proportion and composition. Discover the math that goes into art creation. Learn about the proportions different cultures have found beautiful and how those mathematical relationships have been used to create art. Adopt your own rule of proportions and explore how it looks on the page. Additional sections in this series: March 5, April 23 and May 21, 10 a.m.-noon. Location: Meet at the Doris Duke Center.
