Instructor: Dr. Lee Ann Woolery


Engage your senses - listen, touch, observe
- while walking among 100 year-old saguaros at Desert Discovery Center (DDC),  or mesquite bosque at Canoa Ranch (CR) or perennial streams in riparian areas at Cienega Creek Natural Preserve (CCNP).
Engage your creativity - draw, paint and write the desert’s story, it's patterns, gestures and codes with guided instruction in Art-Based Perceptual Ecology methods taught by ABPE pioneer, Dr. Lee Ann Woolery, ecologist and artist. Learn about the flora and fauna in this unique desert biome and how to translate these place stories to a visual language. No art experience necessary. Choose a 3-week class ($150) (new material introduced each week) or a 1/2 day workshop ($65). Materials fee payable at first class- $10 for 3-wk class or $5 for 1/2 day workshop, or bring your own materials. A materials list, with workshop information and directions will be sent to you after you register.
