Register early for what’s certain to be a sell-out event! Morven is delighted to welcome Robin A. Jess, former Executive Director of the American Society of Botanical Artists and Coordinator of The New York Botanical Garden’s Botanical Art and Illustration Program, for a day-long workshop filled with the scent and color of Morven’s historic peonies. Beginning with a simple line drawing, participants will capture the form and feeling of these airy, showy flowers. Then, watercolor in the traditional botanical methods will be taught with demonstrations and personal attention. All skill levels are welcome and participants are encouraged to bring a bag lunch to enjoy in Morven’s garden.
Ticket price includes Museum admission.
