Artists in the Gardens Workshops: Fall Color

Event Image
Monday, November 06, 2017
10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Experience amazing fall colors at Duke Gardens. Learn about the plant pigments responsible for this seasonal display. Use the autumn landscape as your subject and inspiration to create colorful art. 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. 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. Bring your own digital camera; any kind is great, from cell phones to SLRs. All other materials provided. For children ages 9-12. Meet in the Doris Duke Center. Parking fees apply. Information/registration: 919-668-1707 or Sarah P. Duke Gardens, 420 Anderson St., Duke University, Durham.
