Invasive Natural Inks and Pigments of Northern CA
June 30 @ 8:00 am - July 2 @ 5:00 pm$300
Join Elissa Callen in exploring the use of California invasive plants as art materials for inks, watercolor, and environmental restoration. Throughout the course, students will learn about native and invasive plants, how to ethically harvest plants as color for dyes, inks, and pigment, and how to process them into inks and watercolor. Students will also gain a better understanding of the importance of building a deeper relationship with the natural environment through learning about conservation and the ecological impact of their artistic practice. The class will primarily focus on using invasive plant species of Northern California, but we will also explore the beautiful campus and nearby to see what we can sustainably use on site.
