Plant drawing/printing workshop

UM FLAT
Description:
Draw a plant, explore a simple printing method and become part of an international art project. We invite you to take part in our plant drawing/printing workshop on Saturday July 31st from 10 am to 1 pm in the garden of the sustainability project UM FLAT, 633 S Fifth St E, Missoula (free admission).

The workshop is for people of all ages. There are no particular skills needed. We start with an introduction at 10 am. However, you can join any time. We will present you local plants and create drawings and prints that will be exhibited online and analogue in the frame of the participatory art project “Botanical-Encounter” by I-Chen Lai (Taiwan / Germany). The artist is inspired by the “Codex Kentmanus” a book from the 16th century that is one of the earliest collections of plant drawings and prints. Lai’s idea is to create a modern version of the “Codex Kentmanus” with drawings and prints from people around the world. It is a narrative map that starts with the question: “What was your most memorable encounter with a plant?” The results will be exhibited online on the website www.botanical-encounter.com and on site in the “Garage” exhibition.
