Introduction to Botanical Art in Watercolor 

  • Wednesday, March 8th – 10am to 2pm at San Francisco Botanical Garden.
  • Go to http://www.sfbotanicalgardensociety.org and look under “education” to sign up.
  • Ongoing 10-week sessions are now available for a minimum of 4 students. All levels welcome

Instruction in botanical art is available by arrangement with the artist. Options include: private, group, or workshop coursework.

Armed with a Certificate from the Filoli Botanical Art Program, undergraduate studies in horticulture and studio art, and extensive coursework with Botanical Art Masters, I began teaching in 2011.  It has been my pleasure to work with budding artists of all ages, having worked with children from age 6 to adults. The greatest challenge came while teaching child, parent, and grandparent in one workshop at the UC Berkeley Botanical Gardens. What a delight to see this kind of collaboration. Whether the instruction is private or group, I can tailor your lessons to fit your needs.

I gladly open my home studio, located off of my garden, for private or group instruction. Interested students may assemble their own groups or join ongoing classes. Workshops may also be coordinated either in the home studio or elsewhere.

Testimonial

My botanical art classes with Sally opened the door to that which previously was a mystery:   “How do they do that?”   In a process that initially seemed almost too daunting for this novice, Sally’s patient and enthusiastic teaching style encourages me at every step, challenges me to really see what I am looking at, and gives me the tools and techniques to translate those visions into paintings I can be proud of.   And I get to have fun, in the process, too!  Thank you, Sally!
