Workshop 1: Field Guide To An Alien World
Join the Octavia Project for a special workshop about alien plant life, creative writing, painting, and science fiction! This workshop will use art, botany, and imagination to design a plant that might be found in an alien world. Participants will paint an alien plant that will be included in an alien world field guide. Participants will each receive a digital copy of this publication and will leave the workshop with an idea for a science fiction story, an introduction to plant science, and a taste of the Octavia Project summer program.

These workshops are made possible through the support of our community. We couldn’t provide these educational opportunities without you. Thank you so much!
