Event Navigation

This art and nature walk will focus on the diverse native plants in Lardner’s Point Park. Participants will learn about several key plants and their role in supporting a healthy ecosystem, as well as noting their visual elements (form, pattern, line). The workshop will conclude with an observational line drawing exercise.

You will meet at the entrance to the park off Levick Street. There is limited parking on-site and along the surrounding roads so please share a ride if you can. Please dress according to the expected weather. There is currently construction at the park entrance and it may appear that the road is blocked, however the park is still open. Drive in past the construction signs and park. The park is along the Route 84 bus route.

This event is part of a joint program between the Mural Arts Tacony LAB Community Art Center and Riverfront North Partnership, co-facilitated by artist-in-residence Rebecca Schultz and Riverfront North Partnership’s Project Manager Jim Fries. Through environmental education and hands-on arts activities, participants will gain a greater understanding of the riverfront ecosystems along the Delaware River. All participants are invited to contribute to the culminating artwork by attending follow-up workshops at TaconyLAB. Participants of all ages are welcomed and encouraged!

RSVP to the art and nature walk here! Learn more about this partnership here.
