Botanical Art -  Plants of Healing

Graphite workshop with Twila Robar-Decoste

Friday, July 5th, 2019, 9am - 3pm.

Finding inspiration in the Medicinal and Food Garden Collection of the Botanical Gardens we will study the familiar strawberry to learn basic principles of botanical drawing. We will explore structures, line drawing and tonal shading. Our day will begin with a tour of the healing properties of plants and include notes on the strawberry and its use as historic medicine by Indigenous and pioneer peoples.

In the Greenhouse at the Harriet Irving Botanical Gardens. $70.00 per person, materials provided. Bring lunch and comfortable clothes/shoes for garden tour.
