Ink Painting with Marsh Grasses

  • Saturday, August 12, 2017, 11:00 AM - 1:30 PM

Event from our friends at Strawtown Studio:

This family-friendly program is a wonderful chance to experience the Hudson River and its plants in a new way!

In this program, participants will learn about the Hudson River’s marshes and in particular two species of plants that can be found throughout the Hudson Valley – Cattail and Phragmites. Learn about the difference between these two plants as you paint with them, using different strokes and ink techniques.

By looking closely at the plants under microscopes, participants will be able to compare their inner structures and the ways in which they interact with other marsh species. After painting, participants will better know these important parts of the river ecosystem, and will be able to identify them on future outings.

For the younger ones, there will be a sculpture activity with the marsh grass leaves and stalks.

All ages welcome!
