Granite Belt Wildflowers
This project started with a list of flowers artist Renata Buziak used in her art. This list was long. The names of the flowers were hard to remember. Selecting a shortlist of flowers and organizing them in a simple 1-page visual dictionary gave Renata an option to engage her clients in a hands-on activity even if she wasn’t present at the Gallery where she displayed her work.
It became a 3-part project; a workbook of listed flowers with Renata’s photo reference, a 1-page visual dictionary with nine flash cards of selected flowers and an 8-page activity booklet.
The work on this project included: organization of the client’s photo images and text into a workbook, photo editing, illustrations, 1-page with nine flash cards and a booklet design.
Artist Renata Buziak creates works of art from decaying plants. Her art is abstract; the plants in her works are sometimes unrecognizable. Renata can use these cards to help her audience learn about the flowers she used to create her artwork.
Granite-Belt Wildflowers Activity Cards provide educational components engaging for both children and adults. While having fun crafting their own image, the activity enables the audience to find out which plants were used in the artworks, learn their common and botanical names, and reflect on personal experiences in the natural environment.
