Leaves of Grass Workshop (Lafayette)

September 12, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm PDT

“Oh, good scholar, I say to myself, how can you help but grow wise with such teachings as these— the untrimmable light of the world, the ocean’s shine, the prayers that are made out of grass?”

 Mary Oliver

Once you see the beauty of grass, you can lose yourself for hours in a vacant lot or quiet prairie. Learn how to make a careful scientific illustration of grass species you find in the field. Learn tricks to help you handle and delight in the calligraphy of twisted leaves. Discover ways to draw a distant grassy field, capturing the feel of clumps of bunchgrass. This workshop will be great preparation for our upcoming trip to the coastal prairie!

All ages and experience levels are welcome.  No registration necessary,

$20 suggested donation.
