Winter Workshop 3 (online): Art from your Yard- Natural Pigment Tempera Paint and Smash Flower Art

March 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$8 – $12

In this winter workshop, museum director LeAnne Johnson will teach how to make natural pigment tempera paint using egg yolk and pigments made right from your own yard. Grass for green, rock for gray, daisies for yellow- the colors are infinite! In the second half of the workshop, she’ll show attendees how to unwind with another stress relieving craft- smashing flowers! Hammer a flower into oblivion on muslin and create a beautiful picture from the natural dyes produced by the smashed flower. An instructional PDF will be provided for attendees leading up to the event.
