Calling all nature lovers! We still have room in our Land Art class this fall 🍃🍂🍃 

Join fellow creative art makers to explore the wild wooded acres and open meadows of South Philadelphia at FDR Park.

Become inspired by the land, meandering waterways, and native plant
life to create temporal artworks with natural materials. During this fall 2-day workshop, we will highlight the change of season by focusing on the vibrant colors of autumn in contrast to decaying plant life. 

Participants will learn about artists whose work with nature celebrates the beauty of the land, and those who address environmental issues or climate change. The course will begin with instructor-led assignments and activities that will encourage dialogue and generate ideas. Each student will have ample time and support to develop individual site-responsive works of art that can interact with the land, the water, or the sky.  #madeatfleisher #fleisherartmemorial
