Botanical art is a superb way of teaching careful observation and respect for nature's diversity, and to learns about Maryland's natural history through its trees and wildflowers. Through careful observation and field work in both our garden areas and the natural forest, campers will learn how to journal, collect specimens and make a pressed sample, then sketch/draw/paint what they've found. Students may work in graphite pencil, colored pencil or watercolor (sketchbooks and media provided), then choose a favorite work of art to mat and frame.
