RAC and Bea Martin - Nature Art Exhibition
Date and time
4900 Steveston Highway
Offered in English.
The Richmond Arts Coalition is working with local artist Bea Martin and our local school district to create nature art workshop sessions with local elementary school students, culminating in a public exhibition of their creations at the historic Branscombe House (4900 Steveston Highway) on Saturday, October 8th.
Bea is a character animator, certified medical illustrator (CMI), nature journal educator, and Fulbright Scholar with a medical background. With curiosity and enthusiasm, her goal is to craft entertaining, inspiring, and educational stories, merging art with science in both digital and traditional media in a creative collaborative environment. She also supports the creativity and artistic development in children through nature journal workshops and her website Curiosity, Creativity and Beyond (developed thanks to a Small Neighborhood Grant by Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives). You can also find a picnic table she painted, depicting 5 birds of the lower Mainland and their nests, at the park next to the Gulf Georgia Cannery National Historic Site.
