Leaf Printing Workshop at Jamestown Audubon

Date(s) - Saturday, Sep 27, 2014
1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Audubon Center & Sanctuary


From 1 to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 27, Audubon Center & Sanctuary will present a Leaf Printing Workshop at 1600 Riverside Road, Jamestown. Participants will make two leaf monoprints, one on paper and one on a scarf.

After a brief demonstration by retired fine arts teacher Sue Yauchzy of what is meant by “leaf monoprint,” the class will head outside with naturalist Jennifer Schlick to Audubon’s Ted Grisez Arboretum, a living museum containing over 60 native trees. You will learn a bit about the Audubon grounds and the trees in this gigantic garden while you collect a few fallen leaves for your project.

Participants are reminded to dress for the weather for the brief walk outside and to keep in mind that they will be using permanent inks. You are welcome to bring leaves from a favorite tree to incorporate into your art project.

Class size is limited to 16 people. The fee of $35 or $30 for Friends of the Nature Center includes all materials as well as a copy of Audubon’s Arboretum guide.

Reservations with payment are required by Friday, September 19: call (716) 569-2345 or use the on-line form here.
