This class will explore the exquisite beauty and grace of the plants of the desert southwest and gain greater insight and appreciation for the flora of our arid region. Not only will you become more familiar with the amazing diversity and adaptations of plants, but we will put together an informal botanical scrapbook to illustrate your findings using a variety of skills including sketches, plant pressing, watercolor paintings, leaf rubbings, sketches, watercolors, and the written word. This class is designed for the bare beginner and will lead you though how to create an informal botanical journal. Much of the time will be spent on the museum grounds visually and verbally recording what we see and learn.
