Ruth Ava Lyons. Today I am happy to help spread the news about a brand new residency program created specifically for botanical artists.
If you recall, the Denver Botanic Garden’s School of Botanical Art & Illustration launched a Kickstarter campaign in the Fall to raise money for a residency program allowing three artists to become involved in daily life at the Garden. Thanks to the generosity and support of many backers, this residency program launched last week.
The new program offers three six-week residency opportunities. Residencies are open to all illustrators/artists who have completed a certificate program in scientific illustration, botanical art and illustration, nature illustration or equivalent. Artists working in all media, including three-dimensional applications, will be considered.
The call for artists and the application form are available on the blog of the Denver Botanic Garden’s School of Botanical Art and Illustration.
Applications are due March 16, 2015.
