4-H Mighty Monday: Painting with Soil!

  • Monday, September 21, 2020, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Join Monroe County 4-H for an online workshop exploring the importance and beauty of soil through art!


We will learn how soils can be classified and explore the possible colors of soil through painting. You may be asking yourself, “Why would one want to learn about and paint with soils?” Soil is one of our most important natural resources. The many properties of soils bring beauty and color to our landscape and serve as an important layer on our planet to provide structure and nutrients for many organisms. Painting with the colors and textures of soil is fascinating and a creative opportunity for all ages!


For this workshop, participants can pick up a soil painting kit at the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Monroe County Office (2449 St, Paul Blvd, Rochester NY 14617) anytime during the week prior to this event. The soil painting kit will contain resources needed to participate in the workshop.


REGISTRATION REQUIRED. Space is limited to 30 participants. Program delivered via Zoom.



This event is free of charge due to the generous support of the Genesee Finger Lakes Chapter of the Air & Waste Management Association (GFLAWMA).
