Young artists at Duke Gardens.
Icon calendar
Saturday, April 27, 2019
Icon time
10:00 am - 11:00 am

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. This season, focus on the interactions between plants and animals as we explore a new medium each week. We'll explore habitats, uncover wildlife and identify plants while learning about art and making our own. Classes will include time to investigate the garden, make connections, create art and share work with the group. Join us for the full series or sign up for individual workshops. All materials provided unless otherwise noted. Programs for children ages 9-12.
Capture the sensations of the season with en plein air painting. Make use of paint's vibrant and various colors to recreate what you see before you. Use your color recordings to illustrate and identify particular plant and animal species in Duke Gardens. Location: Meet at the Doris Duke Center.
