Botany for Botanical Artists
6 Thursdays, September 8 – October 13, 2022
6 – 8:30 p.m.
Bring realism to your botanical artwork with a focus on identifying the morphological features of plants. Emphasizing specific plant parts in illustrations is critical to the identification of plant species in both scientific floras and identification manuals. Through a combination of lectures and lab/studio time, you will identify key characteristics in each plant specimen and then transfer them to botanical illustrations. A supply list will be sent.
