  • BHHT OAAI Mapping our Landscape


    August 10, 2019  10:00 am - 11:30 am
    Talalay Nature Sanctuary

    Join Blue Hill Heritage Trust, Cynthia Winings Gallery, and the Seed Barn for a Young Artists Workshop at Talalay Nature Sanctuary. We will hike and explore, looking for paths that wildlife use to think about mapping from a different perspective as well as landmarks important to humans. We will sit in the sun or in shade under a tree and spread out art supplies to make maps of where we went and what we observed. Maybe there will be some natural plant dyes to try out as well! Each person will have the opportunity to make their own map and can get creative with interpretation and medium. Supplies will be provided, but feel free to bring your own favorites along too! For more information, please contact Blue Hill Heritage Trust at 374-5118 or info@bluehillheritagetrust.org
