A Sketchbook of Fungi

  • This event has passed.

September is a great month for foraging fungi. Starting a sketchbook of mushrooms can be a wonderful way to document your finds, enhance your observational skills, and refine your drawing technique. We’ll discuss how to begin a fall fungi sketchbook. Graphite, archival pens, or watercolor – or all three… it’s up to you. Basic mushroom-drawing skills will be shared along with demonstrations of how to create your very own tribute to your mycological finds. A detailed list of required materials can be found online.

This program takes place in-person at Mt. Cuba Center on Friday, September 22, 2023.
