In the spirit of poet Mary Oliver, participants will take a sketchbook or notecard, tuck a pencil in their pockets, and walk amongst the flora, birds, and trees on an artist-guided walk around the grounds of Art Omi. We will explore what makes June, June. Our walk will be articulated with poems and readings chosen by Honeycutt to accentuate the natural occurrences happening on the ground and in the air.
