Here & There

Here is an example of an Echinecea Plant from the Herb Garden, that a grade one student drew in the contour drawing workshop. The artist projected the drawing onto the 24" x 24" birch plywood, then painted the image in the colour palette of Here & There.
Echinecea is a healing herb where, the powdered root is used to stimulate the immune system.

Planting and Drawing

In late September, grade one students from Moberly school planted the winter garlic for the Cultural Herb garden. They learnt what a flavorable bulb it is when they made garlic bread and ate it all up for snack time. We also led them on a contour drawing workshop of the botanical leaves from the Moberly garden. These images would then be utilized in the Here and There project as a reference to the creation of the new herb garden.
