Animate Plants is an interactive installation where participants will learn about native plants and common weeds while creating temporary and 2D mandalas with their leaves, bark and flowers. Artist Sarah Dougherty leads this free all-ages workshop that builds relationships with local biodiversity and creates visual relationships with its flora. Participants will learn medicinal properties of plants while sharing stories of displacement and reactivation of indigenous habitats in Yangna (the Tongva name for Los Angeles).

Sarah is a student of Everything is Medicine and connects urban youth to their inner and outer ecosystems with the collective Art and Nature. She transfers the curative properties found in the plants and homes through plein-air paintings and site-specific workshops.
Animate Plants is the Westward site of Sarah’s 2014 traveling exhibit Mountain Medicine for the Los Angeles Floodplain and is part of SMMoA’s Park Studio: Tree House Public Program Series.
