Leslie Jonath - The Art of Foraging (San Francisco Store)

Saturday, July 21, 2018 - 11:00am

Come see Leslie Jonath at the CUESA Market Booth before her Book Passage Meet & Greet!

Please note: this event will be followed by another Meet & Greet with authors Stephane Hénaut & Jeni Mitchell!

In the spirit of land artists like Andy Goldsworthy, the book is as much about discovery as it is about creation. Leaves shaped like lips might inspire a face; an array of rocks might be become an eclectic mosaic; winter's first snow might be carved into glowing luminaria.

Whether you love to look for heart-shaped flowers or want to make a peacock made with flower petals, readers will find great inspiration and joy in Foraged Art.

Art, meditation, and nature meet in this adult focused activity book, with projects that take inspiration from the natural environment, using blooms, pods, branches, stones, and other natural elements. Divided into chapters by natural elements -- flowers, leaves, rocks and pods, and more, the book will encourage readers to forage and play outside using nature's seasonal art box. With quotes by artists on nature and creativity, the book is about making art from what you find and finding art in what you see.

Leslie Jonath is an author, a book packager and producer specializing in content for food, art, design, and children's projects. She is the author of many books including Snowmen, Everyone Loves Paris, Give Yourself A Gold Star and Love Found. She lives in San Francisco.
