Painting with Nature: Homemade Paints from Natural Materials

10:30 am to 12:30 pm

Enjoy painting? What about watercolor painting using natural paints made from plants? In this program, the EV staff and volunteers will teach you how to make your own paints using plants, allowing you to create your own sustainable art. The program will begin with an interactive instruction on how to use plants to make paints, and transition into a painting session where you can have fun experimenting with these natural colors painting whatever you want.


All art materials (including the plants for making the paints) will be provided, though you are welcome to bring your own. No artistic expertise is required – just come have fun painting sustainably!
