Summer Family Class: Become a Botanical Illustrator
August 19, 2021 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm
Join scientist and artist, Kyle Dickens, for activities from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. RSVP on our website to secure your spot. Classes will be maxed out at 12 children, ages 5 – 12. Cost is $10 per child. Walk-ins are welcome if there are spots available. Parents can join to sit in for some family fun as well!
Participate in a tour around the gardens discovering the many flowers currently in bloom! Learn about the purpose of flowers, their anatomy, and the important pollinators plants rely on. Once the class decides on the perfect spot, pencils and paper will be brought out for a professional art lesson on drawing nature from life. This class is focused on understanding composition, proportion, and value. No previous drawing experience is required.
