Adams, Lori Exploring Small – Become a Nature Detective! Media- Photography,
Nature- Environment,
Visual Arts- Other
This workshop challenges children to look at ordinary objects in different ways as an artist does. It encourages children to make their own discoveries about properties like color, light, form, texture, line and shading, and then how organizing and presenting this information can create artwork. I will use examples of my work as a fine artist using botanical specimens, examples of verse written for 'Little Flowers with Big Attitude' and my work as a scientific and documentary photographer for non-fiction children’s science books to help students compare and contrast being an artist and being a scientist and to encourage them in both directions. Magnifying glasses, natural objects, sample journals, paper and colored pencils are distributed. Observations are discussed about natural objects, and the various ways they can be interpreted via sketches, verse and/or scientifically. This workshop may also be booked as a series. If so, the participants receive handouts of how to photograph at home and bring in the objects and prints of their experiments.
