During this workshop we will learn all about the good insects in your garden and how to encourage their presence. We know about how great ladybugs and praying mantids are, but did you know there are many more awesome insects out there that can help eat those pesky caterpillars and aphids? Students will also receive several handouts that contain helpful resources and information on beneficial insects and pollinators.
Then we will tie dye! There will be PLENTY of vibrant colors available, and we will have several different tie dye styles that students can choose. Bandanas will be provided, and if students would like to decorate an additional item they are welcome to bring a piece of cotton clothing that has been washed.

From Anji . . . “As an instructor, I teach technique rather than a specificproject. I focus on building skills that apply to all types of painting, from abstract to representational art. This way the student can use what they learn in their own creative style.”
