BG1600: Special Topics in Botanical Art: Food for Thought
This course offers a rotating series of topics in Botanical Art and Illustration in response to current exhibitions at the United States Botanic Garden.
Inspired by the U.S. Botanic Garden’s exciting summer 2013 exhibit Food for Thought this class will teach the basics of botanical drawing and painting while studying edible plants from different regions. Beginning students will use pencil and colored pencil; more advanced students may use colored pencil, watercolor or the medium of their choice. During the last two sessions the instructor will guide students in matting and framing their artwork.
A select number of student’s artwork will then be hung in the galleries of the USBG for the remainder of the summer. Students who wish to be considered for the exhibition must register for the class for credit through the Corcoran College of Art and Design. Students should bring lunch each day.
