ArtPlantae is a resource provider whose aim is to encourage an interest in plants and to explore doing so through the use of drawing as a learning tool. Through this website, ArtPlantae connects artists, naturalists and educators so they can learn from each other and encourage an interest in plants in their own classrooms and creative projects.
