Set off on an adventure to explore botany, agriculture, and forestation in this annual Spring into STEAM event. Spring into STEAM is the San Diego Public Library’s science-focused program series for 9 - 12-year-old students. We are partnering with local science experts and organizations to create a truly unique educational experience. Workshops take place both in person and virtually during the months of March, April and May.
Registration is required for all workshops.
Trash into Treasure: Creating Plastic Landscapes
Participants will use recycled materials to create a landscape collage. They will explore how artists have shown landscapes in art as inspiration to draw their own landscapes. Finally, participants will cut and crumple recycled materials to make a textured collage landscape.
