Looking for new places to draw inspiration? Join teaching artist Leila Block for an evening of taking inspiration from the local herbs of this land. Participants will select a bushel of herbs and work with them to receive creative inspiration which will guide them in making a work of art in any medium they prefer. Playing with instinctive capabilities: studying color, shape, smell, taste, symbology and meaning will strengthen will ground you practices that can be applied when you are working at home! Any and all mediums are welcome. The school is equipped with paper, an assortment of paint, and pens/pencils. Bring your own materials if you want to work in a medium other than this.


  • If you already have a relationship with specific herbs or a book on herbs, you are welcome to bring them to work with.
  • Herbs will be provided for everyone who needs them
  • Northwind Art School is equipped with most common supplies for you to use including brushes, water containers, paper towels, pencils, palettes, scrap paper etc.

After registration, course details are available via the Northwind Art School learning portal. Learn more
