Date & Time
"Weaving together science and art, this drawing class offers participants an opportunity to combine field ecology and art as they investigate the Great Bird Blind Debate exhibition through guided observation and notational instruction. Instructor Hara Woltz is an artist and scientist who addresses the destruction and conservation of ecological systems through a variety of visual media. Field research is integral to the creation of her work, and her solo and collaborative projects investigate the relationships between humans, the environment, and other living organisms. Woltz’s work has been exhibited in spaces ranging from Sotheby’s to Storm King Art Center and has appeared in publications including Orion, Popular Science and New York Magazine. Classes are recommended for ages 13 and up. Offered monthly through June.
Please bring a drawing pad, blue or black pen, and colored pencils. We encourage participants to take more than one class to build upon their creative and observation skills, but it is not required."
