Drawing from Nature: A Botanical Studies Workshop (Age: 10+) #796

In this two-day workshop, students will learn basic botany – identifying the parts of plants, how they grow, and how they are classified – and will create a series of graphite sketches using this knowledge. Students will then invent their very own never-before-seen plant and create a botanical illustration in the traditional style, using ink and watercolor pencils. This class will combine research, observation, and imagination to cultivate drawing skills for a fabulous finished product. Students will also plant a seed to bring home and watch it grow! **Weather update: Due to tropical storms Iselle and Julio, and since we do not yet know the intensity of these weather events, we are taking precautions and have postponed the start date of this class. Please take a look at the new dates below. Mahalo!

Explore & Discover: A Class Field Trip Collaboration Between Hui No‘eau & The Maui Invasive Species Committee (MISC)

Dates & Times Scheduled on a First-Come-First-Served Basis
The Stickwork sculpture is more than a beautiful work of art- it represents a well thought-out process of preserving our native Hawaiian forests and making a difference as a team. Bring your class to the Hui to join Hui teaching artists and MISC educators as we use the visual arts as a means of understanding the importance of protecting our natural island resources. Choose from projects like Form Changing Flip Books (to take home with you at the end of class), that illustrate the rate of introduction of different plants and insects to our Hawaiian islands or contribute to the Hui Ho`ololi Mural (to remain on Hui grounds), which illustrates the different tree species used in Dougherty’s sculpture, as well as colorful components of the country’s culture from which they derive.
Fee: $10 per student/ 10-student minimum.
