How can the language of art and the perspective of artists be useful in interpreting the lands we conserve and attracting new audiences? This hands on workshop begins with lessons in the art of drawing and an introduction to the environmental art movement and artists. The second part of the workshop will feature a panel discussion with representatives from local environmental groups who’ve collaborated successfully with environmental artists. Local and national projects combining art and ecology will be presented as models and inspiration for future partnerships, as well as necessary guidelines for choosing artists and seeking funding.
