Join Socrates Director of Education Douglas Paulson & Educator Christina Delfico of iDig2Learn for a workshop that weaves art-making and plant identification together! We will explore the Park, learn about what’s growing around us, and try out new drawing and seeing techniques. No prior experience with drawing or plant identification is necessary.

About the Educators

Christina Delfico is the founder of iDig2Learn, which allows children and their families to explore science and the origin of food through plant life. Plants serve as the gateway to lifelong discovery of all the living things in our water, sky, and land. When one stops and truly sees the marvels of all things, big and small, one can better protect them recognizing how vital they are to our life on earth.

Christina’s early career was dedicated to creating and producing children’s media with Sesame Workshop which helped her recognize the joy of learning at every age. iDig2Learn is a project of Open Space Institute, Inc. a nonprofit 501(c)3 public charity.
