Tree Identification by the Season

©2018 LEAF
Saturday, October 27, 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm
Cost: 
$5 suggested donation

Join us for a guided Tree Tour through Colonel Samuel Smith Park! LEAF’s certified arborist will lead the tour and share fall/winter tips on tree identification. This is the second of a two-part series. On the spring tour, we focused on buds, flowers, and fruits.  This time, we’ll then return to the same trees and look at fall colour, bark and leaf shape.

This event is a two-part series which will allow participants to tour the same route in spring and fall to discuss varying tree identification techniques. Everyone welcome - whether you attended the spring tour or not!

Drawing Leaves with Alan Li

Saturday, November 24, 2018 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm
Cost: 
$50.00 + HST ; all art supplies included

Please join us for a delightful afternoon of drawing in Silverpoint. Many notable artists such as Leonardo Da Vinci worked in this Renaissance medium and our instructor will demonstrate Silverpoint drawing techniques with a step-by-step approach.

Participants will create an original leaf drawing on specially prepared paper made from stone. A unique feature of Silverpoint is how the initial gray image gradually takes on warm brown tones as it ages.

Sterling silver pencils, stone paper and pressed leaves will be supplied. Beginners welcome.
