Art and Science Workshop: Purple Flashdance – Iridescence

March 19 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm PDT

Art and Science workshop hosted by Roseann Hanson, Field Arts Institute and author of Nature Journaling for a Wild Life and Master of Field Arts

I will be hosting four unique art and science workshops this Spring 2022 for the Desert Laboratory on Tumamoc Hill, where I am art and science program coordinator.

Learn the science behind iridescence and its ecological history with Dr. Chad Eliason of Chicago’s Field Museum of Natural History. Chad will discuss why animals such as hummingbirds evolved flashy “structural” colors and how they use them to get ahead in the reproductive game. 


Inspired by the brilliant colors of hummingbird structural feathers, Tumamoc art and science program coordinator Roseann Hansonwill help you learn to paint the iridescent purple gorget of the Costa’s hummingbird using watercolor.

ATTENDANCE: Workshop is online via Zoom; by March we may be able to add an in-person option.

TIME: 10 am to noon Arizona time, Saturday, March 19

COST: $45 (with student discounts available)
