Enjoy Nature’s artistry as you get to know the unique shapes sported by the leaves of our very special Bartram trees. You’ll learn about some notable local leaves and include them in a hand painted design of your own creation.
Teaching artist Heather Rinehart approaches fine art through her love of science and history. She has a professional background in illustration and design and a deep interest in nature and storytelling, offering her student’s instruction in multi-disciplinary place-based art.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Bartram’s Garden is open! And you, as always, are welcome to come to the garden to sketch, paint or journal. However, please note that this is not an in-person class. You may tune into Bartram’s Garden Instagram in order to participate– be that from home with a glass of wine or while social distancing somewhere on the 50+ acres of public green space at Bartram’s Garden.
All of the events in this series will be free in 2020. Please consider supporting Bartram’s Garden as we work to continue to meet our financial obligations to our artists and educators by donating to our Resiliency Fund.
