Duxbury Land Trust Foraged Nature Art Event ~ Saturday, October 9, 2021 ~ 10 – 11:30 AM

Drop in with Teaching Artist Rachel Mirus and Duxbury Land Trust Board Member at the Duxbury Land Trust Swimming Hole in North Duxbury, to explore the possibilities of foraged art! You’ll be able to try art materials made from nature, like berry paint, lichen inks, and feather dip pens. Rachel will have pre-made materials to share and will demo how to make a few of them over the course of the morning.

An accomplished and renown illustrator, Rachel’s passion is using art to teach life sciences to all ages. Originally trained in biology, she has worked in research labs and museums across the country. “In my own art-making, drawing is always about looking deeper and learning more about my subject. I especially like up close and personal portraits of the very small or the uncharismatic, like spiders or worms.”

The event will be held outdoors at the Swimming Hole unless it’s pouring rain. The Swimming Hole is the first property of several conserved by the Land Trust over the years and is a local favorite for a place to cool off and splash around. It is located approximately one mile up Camels Hump Road from where Camels Hump Road intersects with River Road. Park along the roadside.

Free Admission. The event is open to all, particularly families. Participants are encouraged to wear masks, especially if not vaccinated.
