    Painting with Pigment from Nature

    For thousands of years, people have made pigment from nature. In this session, students will learn a step-by-step process for making flower petals into liquid watercolor and then painting with this pigment. You will explore simple watercolor techniques using the beautiful botanic gardens at Interlochen as your subject. You will take home a sample of watercolor liquid, a handout, and your watercolor painting.
