Dine & Draw - Intro to Botanical Drawings
Time & Location
About the Event
Before photography, botanical illustrations were used to share information about plants among scientists and gardeners. Today, botanical illustration flourishes as a fine art. Join Wild Bear Nature Center's Erin Barbeau here at Dharma's Garden to create your very own drawing of plants on the farm. Learn more about the fascinating biology of plants with a short lecture before the drawing tutorial. No previous art experience needed! Bring your own art supplies, or pre-order a limited number of supplies when you sign up.
Erin Barbeau is Wild Bear Nature Center's Community Engagement Director. Erin studied botanical illustration as part of her bachelor's of biology focusing on comparative anatomy of plant species and plants of importance to humans. Erin has described new species of insects, worked in a quarantine facility with invasive species, worked at several museums including an aquarium, and studied caterpillars before joining the Wild Bear team.
