This is a unique opportunity to work with Strawtown artists and naturalists in our studio at Marydell! In each workshop we will focus on one of the four elements, explore their attributes, make art and science connections, and create a work of art. We spend the first part of the class outdoors, harvest natural materials, then come back to the studio for creative time!
Work with the element of fire to make your own charcoal for drawing! The wood from the willow tree is well known for its softness and lack of grain, which makes it a great choice for charcoal. In this class we will learn a little about the willow tree, burn our own charcoal, and explore it as a drawing medium.
