This year I have had the wonderful opportunity to meet ArtPlantae readers in person. From what they’ve told me, the Classes Near You section and the Exhibitions section are popular, as are the weekly teaching and learning column and conversations with featured artists like Coral Guest.
At the close of each year, I invite you to send information about classes and events you will offer during the coming year. This time I would like to extend this invitation again and add that the information you send is being read by a wide audience. So I wanted to take a moment to encourage you to send information about classes, exhibitions or special projects in which you are involved. Doing so is not only a great way to reach out to potential students, but is a great way to connect with other artists, naturalists and educators.
To make submitting information easier, I have gathered some instructions below:
Classes Near You
If you teach and would like to let others know about an upcoming class or adventure to a far-away land, please send a quick note along with your information and I will create a listing on the appropriate state &/or country page and post an announcement.
To list your botanical art workshops, botany classes, book arts classes or sketchbook adventures, please send the information below to email@example.com. When your information is posted, it is also pushed out to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
- Your name
- The name of your class
- Date of your class
- Class times
- Location of your class
- A description of your class.
- Registration information or website where student can get all course details.
To announce an upcoming botanical art exhibition or an exhibition about a closely related subject, please send your information to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a media image, please send this along a well. If the hosting museum, gallery or garden is handling all media requests, please point me in the right direction and I will contact them for information.
Are you involved in a project that encourages an interest in plants? Share your news! Contact me at email@example.com.
The annual ArtPlantae Reader Survey will be coming your way soon. So if you have thoughts to share, please save them for the survey. Your feedback is always welcome and appreciated.
