Description

Plant Pound Sketch Pads
Get the jumpstart you need on sketching the beautiful plants and flowers of the Garfield Park Conservatory. Create your own sketchpads out of cloth, cardboard, paper, and pigments from flowers found at the Conservatory. Then, use your sketchpad to draw plants around the Conservatory. Caution to parents: we will be using kid-sized hammers in this activity!

 

Easel-In
Bring your creativity, an artistic eye and “easel-in” to the Sugar From the Sun Room at the Conservatory. We will set up empty easels with blank paper and pencils for participants to stop and draw inspiration from our living collection.
