Soils, soot, milk and sap – for thousands of years humans made nontoxic art from what was at hand. During this day of grinding, mixing, and experimenting, Ane Carla will share the historic recipes she has been researching and using for the past 20 years. Students will make four unusual natural paints and will also try using soils chalks, historic inks, and baked charcoals that Ane Carla made.


Enjoy this intimate, fun, and memorable hands-on workshop in light-filled, comfortable Heron Hall. You’ll be surrounded by gorgeous views of nature and the peace and quiet of the Laguna Environmental Center during a time that is closed to the public. Most workshop supplies will be provided, as well as hot drinks and light snacks.


Ane Carla Rovetta is a local science illustrator, storyteller-extraordinaire, and uses native plants and historic recipes to create art.


For adults 18 years and up. Pre-registration required.
