Instructional Herbariums is a STEAM and literacy educational program designed to serve K–12 classroom instruction for schools with active gardening programs. It is an adaptable kit of materials, resources, and lessons that teachers can use based on the needs of their classroom and readiness of their gardens.
I offer workshops for teachers in schools to develop this program from a pro-type into a tested, instructional program. Ideally, I would like to work directly with a school’s art teacher, classroom teachers, and reading specialists.
More information available above ("botany + literacy").
I offer nature printing workshops for children at summer camps and after school programs. These workshops are designed to teach botanical observation and printing skills that a young naturalist can practice at home. An ideal workshop is out of doors or in an art classroom for at least 1 1/2 hours.
Every workshop is different depending on context and number of children. Please contact me directly for more information.

Nature Printing (Adult/Family)
I offer nature printing workshops for printmaking students, adults, and families at various kinds of venues. These workshops are designed to introduce a history of nature printing in Pennsylvania and teach skills that a printmaker and naturalist can use to document plants from their own gardens or neighborhoods. An ideal workshop is out of doors or a workshop space for about 1 1/2 hours.
Every workshop is different depending on context and venue. Please contact me directly for more information.
