Botanical Illustration Workshop with Dr. Linda Ann Vorobik at the Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens

Evening Lecture and Reception: Friday, March 27, 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Workshop (ART 310): Saturday, March 28th & Sunday, March 29th 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Learn the basics for creating botanical illustrations from professional botanist, botanical illustrator, and teacher, Dr. Linda Ann Vorobik. Linda, through demonstrations and lectures, introduces participants to drawing skills, parts of the plant, what botanical illustration is when defined precisely, and watercolor techniques as used for painting plant portraits. All skill levels are welcome: accomplished artists can increase their knowledge of botany and skilled botanists learn drawing and painting techniques. A list of required supplies will be mailed to participants.

Join us the Friday preceding the weekend workshop for a casual reception, where Dr. Vorobik will showcase some of her works and techniques.

Note: Each day of the workshop there will be a lunch break from noon – 2 p.m.  Dr. Vorobik will stay in the classroom with short breaks only for those who wish to eat at the Garden or work through the lunch break.
