Berkshire Botanical Garden

Students of all levels welcome

Bring a bag lunch

Bring to life the beauty of garden flowers with colored pencil and graphite. Enjoy sketching at Berkshire Botanical Garden each day. Make studies of flowers as they grow and breath in the garden beauty. In the classroom, design a composition of flowers or found garden treasures brought from your own garden. Embellish with a butterfly, or a bee or two. Led by instructor/illustrator Carol Ann Morley, students will have fun working on compositional ideas to make your own garden story. Begin with graphite sketches and colored pencil studies. Basic colored pencil techniques will be covered, as well as how to develop your studies into a final artwork expressing nature’s beauty.

Carol Ann Morley is an illustrator and dedicated teacher of botanical illustration working in Dover, NH. She founded the Botanical Art Illustration Certificate Program at the New York Botanical Garden and teaches illustration there and at other botanical gardens.
