Botanical Illustration Workshop

Friday, October 26, 2018

1:30 - 3:30 P.M.

Location: UNF Nature Trails

Take a guided hike around the UNF Nature Trails with ELP leaders Kyle Kenney and Molly O'Brien to learn about the unique and important plants of the preserve and let the participants get inspired.  Then once we return to the picnic tables at the trail head, we can discuss what botanical illustration is, why it and nature journals are important or useful, and then you can help give us tips to getting started. We can all draw and make notes on our own plant of interest. 
Artist and guest speaker Sarah Crooks will be joining us that afternoon to lead the art activity.

UNF photography professors, Alexander Diaz and Kally Malcom-Bjorklund, will both lead participants through the process of creating lumen prints and photograms with materials found in the Sawmill Slough Preserve. Lumen prints and photograms are created by placing objects directly onto the surface of photographic paper and then exposing them to light. The workshop will begin at the Sawmill Slough Preserve (park in Lot 100) and end at the Photo Lab, which is where the prints will be produced.

 

This workshop is part of the  Pre[serve] Art Exhibition , a student and alumni juried art exhibition featuring works inspired by the Sawmill Slough Preserve. Submissions for the exhibition will be accepted until March 1, 2019.
