Milkweed is native to North America, which Monarchs migrate through to complete their life cycle. During this workshop, we will create a drawing of the Monarch butterfly interacting with its host plant and learn a little bit about how we can help this endangered species.

Jardin de Cactus, the Cactus Garden, is located at a former quarry for the extraction of volcanic ash and rock once used by prickly pear growers to conserve the ground’s nighttime moisture. The architect and artist César Manrique saw in this location the chance to convert a disused area into an unusual, terraced site where more than 1,400 clearly classified species of cactus are now grown. The site has Manrique’s unmistakable seal and is topped by a windmill, once used for grinding corn.

PAINTING A BAMBOO GROVE
Garden of 10,000 Bridges. Xi’an, China

Wednesday, 10/12/2022 @ 5:30 PM – live Zoom Art Workshop

There is only one entrance to the Garden of 10,000 Bridges, and one exit of the path, which goes through the garden. The narrow path is curling through the garden of bamboo and passes over and under each bridge. The visitor is not able to see at which point of the garden he is at the moment and how much of its way he has finished. In these moments the visitor is limited to himself, maybe to the person in front. Everyone is surrounded by the sounds of the moving bamboo.

Our workshops are designed for younger children, however, they are also addressed to parents and grandparents. No matter the age, gender, race, and family background — everyone can participate. Also, what is a very important part of this art series, children are inspired while working together with older members of family or caregivers and see the importance of art and creativity.

During GARDENS art series, we will discover many diverse gardens as well as other objects of landscape architecture. We will find their original names, dates of creation, and locations. They are united by one thing – each of them is a “living work of art”, which, unlike buildings, paintings and sculptures, is constantly changing and surprising. It sprouts, grows, blooms, ripens, swings in the wind, or bends under raindrops. In dry climates, it dries and in cold climates, it falls asleep under the snow. It creates an absolutely magical world of shapes, smells, and colors – just like the nature that surrounds us. Gardens can have various forms and functions, and how they look and what they are used for depends on the people involved in their design – landscape architects. During our workshops, the project participants will try to enter into their roles. First, studying the existing fanciful and diverse gardens of the world, and later, on the basis of the garden learned, they will create their own projects with various design techniques. To convey their own visions, the participants of the workshops will use painting, drawing, collage and sculpture, and maybe other unusual materials to illustrate their own ideas.

PUPPETS IN ART, 2015

WESTCHESTER COUNTY. In a series of art workshops children (age 4-12) will learn how to make different kind of puppets. Puppetry requires encountering and experiencing many art forms, which can enhance the learning experience. It encourages interaction, fosters imagination and facilitates a dialogue. Children can believe and relate to puppets, which are both entertaining and captivating. They discover a way of expressing themselves without the heat being on them, as all eyes and ears are turned on the puppet.
