Leach Garden Arts – Botanical Art Observations

Description: We often don’t take time to really observe the winter plants growing around us. The smallest sprig contains so much to observe! Please join us for a close look at the flora of your choice to create a colored pencil drawing or watercolor to take home. Bring a plant to draw or paint, or find one here. Adults of any skill level welcomed. Materials provided.
