Sip and Sketch: Photographic Curiosity Cabinets

Evening Program

Brought to you in part by Home ReSource.

The Montana Natural History Center’s February Artist in Residence, Peggy Christian, will guide you through the process of combining photography and words to create a unique and beautiful work of art.

Practice mindful photography as you explore a specimen, resulting in a deeper connection. Peggy will direct you in carefully editing your photos, and you’ll choose six that will provide a narrative. Add text to develop the story and, finally, affix photos and text to a wooden canvas. Learn how photography can go beyond simple documentation–it can be used to sharpen your senses, heighten awareness, and, yes, tell stories.

Any smart phone or digital camera will work for this program!
