The Virginia Robinson Gardens Botanical Art program started nine years ago and has been carefully nurtured by renowned teachers from England and Canada. We are now privileged to have one of Southern Californiaʼs botanical artists and authorities on morphology and botany, agree to present a one-day class at Virginia Robinson Gardens:
Tania Marien, “Plant Morphology and Economic Botany” One-day class, Wednesday, October 27th, 2010 10 am – 3 pm Course fee: $60.00 for Friends of Robinson Gardens $75.00 for non-Friends $25.00 is non-refundable if for any reason the student has to cancel Checks should be made payable to: Friends of Robinson Gardens, 1008 Elden Way, Beverly Hills, Ca 90210 Payment may be made by credit card by calling (310) 550-2068 The Plant Morphology Reg Form must be filled out and returned to the Friends of Robinson Gardens address.
Tania Marien is a long time member of the American Society of Botanical Artists as well as the local chapter the Botanical Artists Guild of Southern California. She has taught botany at the Getty Museum and for other institutions and schools. She is a very knowledgeable young woman that will bring life and excitement in to knowing how to make your paintings botanically correct. She will provide a booklet to keep for reference and during class we will use dissecting kits and magnifying lens as well as microscopes.
This we can promise you – school was never like this class and should be fun and enjoyed by all.
A materials list will be sent to all registered students prior to the class as well as parking instructions. The class will be held in the Pool Pavilion from 10am to 3pm.
