Contemporary Botanical Art - Intro to Botanical Drawing.

Intro to Botanical Drawing: Workshop instructor Alice Tangerini is a Botanical Illustrator for the Smithsonian Institute. Alice has extensive experience creating illustrations for scientific publications. This workshop will be a hands-on experience, using paper, pencil and ruler to create accurate drawings of plants with simple shapes. The goal is for botanists to develop their creative skills or simply make better sketch notes in the field or from the microscope. A materials list will be sent to registrants. Maximum of 15 participants. The American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA) is a nonprofit organization of nearly 1200 contemporary botanical artists, collectors and botanists primarily in the US, but around the world as well. Our offices are generously provided by The New York Botanical Garden. ASBA exhibitions have been shown there as well as at MOBOT, Chicago Botanic Garden, Kew Gardens, London, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History and others. ASBA is dedicated to promoting public awareness of contemporary botanical art. A component of ASBA’s vision is to acknowledge the power of botanical art to communicate the importance of plants to our world whether through conservation, science, horticulture or agriculture.
