Field Guide: Blending and Defending for the Next Generation
Saturday, September 17 • 11AM – 1PM • Pre-Registration Required • All Ages Welcome • Free!
20 participants (all ages)
Join us as we marvel at how insects, animals and even plants defend themselves and stay strong to live another day. Trees can create wound wood to heal broken limbs, insects can create cocoons that look like leaves and birds can blend with their surroundings so no predator can find them while guarding their nest eggs. In this workshop, Socrates Sculpture Park’s director of education, Doug Paulson, will share how artists see color and the technique of blending, while iDig2Learn founder, Christina Delfico, will share fascinating stories of wildlife and plant blending and defending capabilities. Participants will experiment with art blending techniques and then head to the park with eyes toward discovering camouflage and defense in nature and be encouraged to rejoin the group and share.
