Botanical Garden of the Ozarks – Botanical Sketching Workshop (Fayetteville, AK)

Join Caite and Karla as they head into the Gardens with their sketchbooks! The two will be leading casual drawing sessions intended to deepen awareness and appreciation for plants and to gain the many benefits of the drawing process. Beginners can start a new lifelong skill, while advanced artists can build on prior experiences. All will benefit from the community of shared interests as we take to the Gardens for some dedicated time with the plants. Sketchbooks and drawing tools will be provided, or you may bring your own. Sessions can be completely self-guided, or Caite and Karla will provide guidance, especially for those new to drawing. No prior skills needed!
