A leaf print art workshop will be held at the UT Arboretum on Saturday, August 11th from 9:00 to noon. The cost is $25 for members of the UT Arboretum Society and $30 for non-members. The program will be held at the UT Arboretum Sharp Program Shelter, 901 S. Illinois Avenue in Oak Ridge.


Arboretum Society board members Kathy Fahey and Lynda Haynes will work with participants to create large leaf prints to be used as birdbaths, coffee table art and more. All project materials except paint will be provided.  Please bring a sack lunch. Time will not permit to paint the leaf prints, but instruction will be given about the type of paint needed to finish the project at home.


The popular class is expected to fill up quickly, as it has in the past. To register, email Janet Bigelow at janet_bigelow@tds.net or call 865-675-3822.
