Cultivate creativity, curiosity, & settle into the restorative power of artmaking in the greenhouse and garden.
Combine the art and science of observation in weekly artmaking inspired by plants in the greenhouse and garden.
Learn meditative and mindful drawing, printmaking and sculptural techniques, scientific observation with plant portraiture, and new practices from botanical and ecologically-focused contemporary artists to create works of art to celebrate the plants and flowers you feel most connected to. Immerse yourself in the learning garden, greenhouse, and across Riverbank State Park’s green roof overlooking the Hudson River to create artwork that is rooted in place and in partnership with plants.
This is a free drop-in program. Come to every class to build on your skill or come to one or two that you are available for. This class will end in a culminating Community Winter Show to exhibit your work in our greenhouse.
