The Art of Science: Birds of a Feather
March 10 @ 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM
The “Art of Science” is a series of environmentally focused workshops interweaving science and art to illustrate nature’s beauty, key environmental concepts, threats, and solutions to pressing issues.
Each workshop will focus on a different theme and medium and be taught by a team of scientists and artists. Workshops will include a scientific presentation, a short outdoor field trip, creating an art piece with one-on-one instruction, and prepping for an exhibition, showcasing the workshop’s theme, process, and focus.
Art workshop will focus on birds. Participants will learn about avian natural history, endangered and threatened local species, field identification, and other birding skills from Rocky Mountain Research Station Conservation Education Coordinator Brenda Strohmeyer. After the presentation and a birding field trip, participants will learn several techniques for drawing birds with local artist and long time birder Zack Zdinak.
Medium: Pencils (provided). Please bring your own sketch pad (we will have plenty of extras).
Time: 8:30am-3:30pm (1 hour lunch break on your own).
Cost: $45/participant or $35/Willow Bend Members
