Workshop to employ leaves in print making

In “Creating Prints with Nature,” the last in the series of Sundays in the Studio! workshops led by artist Sarah Smitherman, participants will explore various types of leaves while making monoprints.

“We will exercise our creativity by cutting leaves and arranging them on printing plates with other material,” says Smitherman, a graphic designer in the UWindsor Department of Public Affairs and Communications.

The workshop, Sunday, Aug. 27, at Art Windsor-Essex, is free with admission to the gallery. It will run on a drop-in basis from 1 to 4 p.m. in the second-floor Education Studio at 401 Riverside Dr. West.
