A free hands-on workshop where we’ll make prints with plants!
The stems, leaves, and flowers of plants are essential to their functions: making their own food and providing it to other living things, building healthy soil, cleaning and filtering water, and providing shade. They also create beautiful shapes, lines, and patterns. In this workshop, we will make monoprints with plants.
Artworks created during the workshop will be incorporated into Mapping Our Watershed, a mixed media piece by local artist Rebecca Schultz inspired by the watershed in Cheltenham Township.
Mapping Our Watershed is a participatory art and community science project led by Rebecca Schultz in collaboration with TTF, and Cheltenham Arts Center that aims to connect residents with the complex ecology of the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed in Cheltenham Township, Pennsylvania. Mapping is about creating a visual representation of a place; it is also a process of documenting the relationships and experiences of that place. Local residents will map their experience of the watershed by learning about its interdependent elements and translating their impressions of those elements into art.
