Join Darrel Morrison for this inspirational and fun workshop.  Morrison will be discussing the relationship between ecology and design and will show examples of his work in which art and ecology intersect.  The workshop will include a series hands-on quick design concept studies and musical exercises to provide initial designs, which will then be translated into preliminary planting plans for a hypothetical site.  Students should bring 18” tracing paper, chalk pastels, colored pencils, triangles/circle templates and their creative minds.
