Evening Botanical Immersion Drawing Workshop

Evening Botanical Immersion Drawing Workshop

SKU: 2024 Spring Freedman Botanic

Evening Botanical Immersion Drawing @ the U.S. Botanic Garden

All Levels

Instructor:  Mary Freedman

Friday & Saturday,  6:30-9:30pm  May 31 & June 1

3 hours each evening, In-person / Room 2A & U.S. Botanic Garden



In this two-day workshop, students will learn various techniques that will engage them in drawing plant life in an immersive way. Not only will students understand how to depict the likeness of a plant, students will also learn how to convey the individual plant’s “personality” through an interactive study of the plant. 


On the first day, students will meet at the Washington Studio School for a drawing session that will prepare them for drawing on-site at the U.S. Botanic Garden.


On the second day, students will draw in the grand Tropics house at the U.S. Botanic Garden and be fully immersed in various plant species as they monitor their behavior by night. In addition to the guidance of WSS instructor Mary Freedman, a USBG horticulture specialist will give students a tour of the Tropics house and answer questions about specific plants.  


This workshop will be offered after hours, from 6:30 to 9:30 PM, at both WSS and the US Botanic Gardens.
