School’s Out Family Workshop: Forest Portraits
Time: 1:00-2:30 p.m.
Cost: Elmhurst Heritage Foundation Members: $12/person; Non-members: $15/person
When Marion Mahony Griffin moved from Chicago to Australia, she fell in love with the beautiful form and exotic color of the natural environment. She created a series of tall botanical drawings of trees made with Japanese inks on colored silk, which she called Forest Portraits. Debora Wood, artist, author and curator at the Art Institute of Chicago, will teach this unique technique so participants can create a Forest Portrait of their own—inspired by our natural surroundings! Kids and parent/caregiver participate together. Appropriate for families in grades 1–5.
