Plankton Painting

Join us for an experimental photography workshop led by local artist and scientist where you'll create "paintings" of local plankton.

Using microscopes and chrono-photograhy, capture photos of the trails created by these microscopic creatures with local artist and scientist Jess Holz. Learn about microscopic pond life while getting a fascinating glimpse into their dynamic behavior, such as the helical paths of flagellates and the water currents generated by rotifers as they feed.

Please note that though this workshop is open to all ages, it is geared for ages 13 and up. Space and materials are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
