 Paper, pen or pencil, and coloring materials (example: watercolor, colored pencil, or crayon).

 In this workshop, we will create line drawings of three flying look-alike’s in the insect kingdom: syrphids, honeybees and yellowjacket wasps. While many members of the syrphid family (including flowerflies/hoverflies) display color and pattern to mimic the appearance of stinging insects like bees and wasps, they are harmless.

Through drawing and painting focused on pollinators’ importance to crops and the ecosystem, participants will gain awareness of their declining numbers due to habitat loss, pesticides, climate change, and disease. See one of our art workshops: https://youtu.be/G6fM76eGSsM Participants will discover their power to change the environment for the better, and while learning about insects and other pollinators, they will feel more connected to nature.
