And if you are stuck in a winter wonderland, here’s an eight-minute treat for you. The illustrator behind Lemniscates, Carme, has created a workshop based on the art in Trees. It’s an incredible opportunity to work in your own home, alongside the artist in her studio.

Gather some materials: colored paper, some leaves and sticks, scissors, paint, and glue.

Watch it, dream it, make it.

 

There is also some great downloadable content at Lemniscates’s webpage here. Coloring pages, finger puppets, and puzzles galore! Take a peek and have even more fun!
