The Botanical Artists Guild of Southern California (BAGSC) is a chapter of the American Society of Botanical Artists, and is dedicated to encouraging the development of botanical art and the promotion of public awareness of this artistic tradition. We strive to illustrate the diversity of plant life, as well as bring attention to those species and ecosystems which are imperiled.

Guild members are committed to improving their artistry and technical abilities. The Guild supports and sponsors workshops with local experts and visiting lecturers in areas such as drawing and painting botanical subjects, botany, calligraphy, and resources.

Members of the Botanical Artists Guild of Southern California come from a variety of backgrounds and professions. Each person brings with them a wide range of knowledge, creative and technical skills. We warmly welcome people who share our interests and goals.
