June 30, 2020 10:00 am to 11:00 am

Online Class


This program has been cancelled.

Use your plants as inspiration for a handmade book! In this workshop for kids or kids and their grown-ups, Iocal art educator Joey Chernila will show you step-by-step how to create a fun zine, or homemade artist’s book, featuring your favorite houseplants and garden friends as the main characters. We’ll start by making drawings and watercolor paintings of our plants, and then we’ll cut them out and collage them into our handmade zines. Fun for the whole family! 

Note: A supply list will be provided upon registration.
