Members of the Botanic Arts Circle will help participants select and sketch examples of the Woodland’s beauty.  These artists have years of experience in creating exquisite works of botanic art that focus on the beauty and details of individual plants.  They will share their expertise with you, providing tips on how to approach the development of a botanic sketch along with suggestions on techniques.  This is an opportunity for individuals at any level of experience and skill in art.  Children are welcome but must be accompanied by a parent.

In the event of rain, the event will be held inside the Reed-Turner Nature Center.

There is no fee for this opportunity to explore the beauty and challenges of botanic art.

The event will be on Saturday, June 10, from 1-3 p.m. at the Reed-Turner Woodland Preserve, 3849 Old McHenry Rd in Long Grove.  For further information, contact Lyndsay Murphree at Lyndsay.murphree@gmail.com.

Capacity is limited so advance registration is required.  To register, simply email syoung@lgparks.org with your name, phone number and the number of individuals in your group.

Bring your sketch pad and enjoy this artistic experience of nature.
