Garden art adds to the landscape and draws the eye around the garden. This idea was a topic of exploration for the ceramic classes of Winters High School.
WHS art teacher Kate Humphrey asked students to create a piece for the Winters Community Library Teaching Garden. As part of the process for creating their work, students visited the garden and first made drawings of the plants. The next step was to create artwork out of clay for display within the library garden.
Community members are invited to attend an opening of the student show which will be held in conjunction with the Master Gardeners of Yolo County Plant Sale at the Winters Community Library Teaching Garden (708 Railroad Ave.) on April 16 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The student artwork will be on display throughout the garden for gardeners and art lovers to wander and view the pieces among the landscape.
On the day of the sale, visitors will have the opportunity to purchase student artwork, plants from Morningstar Herb Farm of Vacaville, and a variety of cookbooks, gardening books, and nature books from Winters Friends of the Library. In addition, Master Gardeners will be available to answer your questions about the plants offered for sale or other gardening questions. Don’t miss this garden-focused day of art, plants and books.
