Join artist Samanta Batra Mehta to create "drawing sculptures" with mylar, gold leaf and upcycled materials, to capture the light of early spring. Taking inspiration from Wave Hill’s gardens, make botanical drawings and enhance them with gold leaf and gilding. Transform your drawings into a homage to the coming spring equinox through adding sculptural details and placing your work in the home of an upcycled glass jar. Free, with admission to the grounds.
