Indigenous Botanical Exploration through Watercolour

This course will be an introduction to both the medium of watercolour and Indigenous connections to the natural world through botanical exploration. This class will take place both outside and indoors. Together we will read and discuss readings associated with Indigenous connections to the plant world. We will then take those words and teachings and think through them while painting. During outdoor walks we will learn from the local flora and discuss the readings in context to the local environment. This course is designed to connect making and learning, as well as build a deeper understanding of Indigenous land connection.
