RBCM@Home (Kids) Botanical Art

Botanical Art with Coral and Eden Forbes

Spring flowers are starting to bloom and are the perfect focus for an art project. Coral and Eden Forbes will press flowers and leaves using supplies from around your home and then create nature-themed art with you!

Please remember that flowers become seeds which are the next generation of plants and food for many animals so please gently remove only one or two per plant. Also, flowers must not be picked in parks, so stick to gardens after asking permission first! 

Supplies needed:

  • Fresh flowers and leaves
  • Heavy hard-covered books
  • Newspaper
  • Crafting paper
  • Glue (white or stick)
  • Tweezers
  • Paintbrush
  • Pencil

RBCM @ Home (Kids) is hosted by Chris O'Connor.

RBCM @ Home (Kids) is like a museum playdate online. Visit with members of the museum staff who are working from home, along with families from across BC, as we make and learn together. Each session will have some kind of making activity, so get your paper and pencil crayons ready. RBCM @ Home(Kids) takes place on Wednesdays at 11 am, visit our calendar for topics, presenters and a list of materials so you can join in with hands-on activities at home.

For adults and youth, check out RBCM @ Home. This program takes place on Tuesdays at 12pm and highlights members of the curatorial and collections staff who are working from home during the pandemic and discover how they do their work, how their work is reflected in their homes and what they're working on now.
