In Studio with Oolite: Miami Beach Walking Studio

April 20 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Join local artist Onajide Shabaka for a MIAMI BEACH WALKING STUDIO Workshop open to anyone (teenage and over), casual walkers, tourists, botanists, historians, curators, performers, artists, storytellers with curiosity about the plants and the environment they see and regularly encounter. We will see (hear, smell, and touch) much more than the botanical side of the environment.

Participants will be invited to interact with the artist by trying out his practice of walking a short distance to discover a nearby hidden landscape of overlooked seedlings, rocks, or other natural detritus. Then, they will return to Oolite Arts’ PRINTshop to draw any of the plants, rocks, and other found elements that they have salvaged and, to accompany those illustrations with any writing (poetry, memories, anecdotes) they may wish to share. Participants will also be invited to create a rubbing or “print” by using the natural environment as source material.
