Naturalist and artist, Mark Catesby, created the first illustrated record of the plants and animals of North America. His field notes and observations are recorded in The Natural History of Carolina, Florida & the Bahama Islands. Only fifty facsimile copies exist. To mark the 300th anniversary of Catesby’s arrival to the New World, 20 sets of his landmark text have been published and bound by Addison Publications, the publisher who also published Prince Charles’
Highgrove Florilegium.

How many ways can you paint plants?

Judy Thomas has some ideas for you. Read below about the new class she will teach in the Art in the Garden program at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden.

Here is what’s new at Classes Near You > Virginia:


Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

www.lewisginter.org
In 1884, Lewis Ginter purchased some property and built a gathering place for Richmond bicyclists. One hundred years later, the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden was established on this same piece of property and soon became one of the top five destinations in Virginia. The Garden is home to Artbase a searchable database containing 2,500 botanical watercolor paintings by Alexandre Descubes. The Adult Education program at the garden includes workshops in botanical drawing and painting and a certificate program in botanical illustration.

The program also includes an Art in the Garden series that encompasses drawing, sketching, knitting and this new class with artist Judy Thomas:

    Felt Painting with Botanical Subjects
    Saturdays, November 2, 9, 16, 23, 2013
    9:30 AM – 2:30 PM
    Felt painting uses a combination of wet and dry (or needle) felting techniques with wool, along with beading, embroidery, and lace, to produce lovely works of three-dimensional art. Students in this four-day class will learn the fundamentals of both wet and dry felting to produce their own design, using themes from botany. See a sample felting project on the registration page for this class. The techniques learned can be used to create decorative items for the home, pillows, bags, and clothing.
    Cost: $180 members, $219 nonmembers.
