Painting with Natural Dye Extractions
Saya Benham, Visual Artist (Mixed Media and Sculpture)
Working with plants and flowers can bring us closer to nature and allow a respite from the digitally-saturated world. Join Saya for this engaging workshop where you will learn how to extract colors from both fresh and dried flowers. You will then use the colors to create your own artwork, painting on paper and cotton. This workshop does not require any prior art experience.
Please note: The 2 p.m. workshop is a repeat of the 10:30 a.m. workshop.
