Colors of the River: Art-Based Water Quality Research


Jul 24, 2024


6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Kilbuck Township Fish & Boat Ramp


Three Rivers Waterkeeper

Have you ever wondered if the colors around us are more than just pretty? Join us as we venture into Pittsburgh’s waterways to explore riparian pigments and what they can tell us about water quality. We will use art-based research methods to understand abstract scientific concepts by making paintings out of the surrounding colored materials such as leaves, bark, and rocks. Artistic skills or research experience are not required, only an open mind and clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty.

This workshop will take place on a rock beach of Kilbuck Township’s Fish & Boat Ramp which sits along the Ohio River. Bring a chair if you would prefer not to sit on the beach, and feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
