Plant Walk and Sketch

nostalgia-walk-and-sketch.jpg

Inspired by Tom Ward’s vision of the urban forest, the theme of March’s plant walk is “Nostalgic Landscapes.” We’ll walk around two North Portland neighborhoods that are populated by plants that hearken back to early resident’s homelands, chosen primarily for their ornamental qualities and sentimental value. Which of these plants have multiple functions? What other plants are hidden in this residential landscape? And first of all, how can one tell what is what, especially in late winter? Bring your questions.

After the walk we’ll head into the studio and do some relaxing sketching and have a chance to take a look at details of botanical bits we picked up along the way. And have tea. Mmmm. All levels welcome.
