As part of her exhibit at Queens Botanical Garden, Arocha teaches you to identify shapes that guide you as you create your own drawings of birds.

This event also includes birdwatching and a scavenger hunt.

Visual artist Tatiana Arocha's Sanctuaries is a series of wall-scale, intricately-layered reinventions of natural Colombian landscape, hand-constructed on digital canvases, printed, and arrayed into immersive murals. Both a refuge and warning, Sanctuaries uses a combination of natural specimens, human artifacts, and modern technologies to evoke a rainforest that is as lush as it is imperiled.
