Art Journaling at Morven
All Levels | Ages: 16+
Tuesdays | 11am-1:00pm

May 22 – June 26

Instructor: Dressler Smith
Students will create an artist journal based on Morven’s gardens and learn how to use at least three different mediums as they draw and create a collection of sketches, paintings and collages. They will observe the roots of plants and use them as a metaphor to their own personal writings about life’s parallels. The ideas that come from using the five senses will also be encouraged with writing prompts for very basic poetry and prose. Still life arrangements will be used with the addition of fruits and vegetables from the garden. The use of primary colors and their complements will be explored in many ways.

Please note this workshop takes place at Morven [55 Stockton Street in Princeton].
Registration is exclusively through the Arts Council of Princeton; for more information and to register, please visit
