Seminar: Robin Whitfield, The Color of Conservation
October 19 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Robin paints on location with watercolor and experiments with foraged wild pigments. She takes a special interest in exploring native habitats on public land in Mississippi. Relating what’s happening with the paint to what is perceived from nature is a dance of addition and subtraction; an act of filtering, distilling and synthesizing what is loved, sensed and understood.
Robin’s seminar on The Color of Conservation: cultivating creativity and curiosity as a way to connect to place shows her connection to the Lee Tartt Nature Preserve and Friends of Chakchiuma Swamp where she is listed as: Director & Visionary – often found saving native plants from roadside ditches, encouraging kids to play with mud, and whole-heartedly shares her magic with everyone & everything, wherever she goes.
