Garden Sketchbook”

Barnes Arboretum invites you to join them

Barnes Arboretum is offering a 3-day workshop: “The Art and Nature of the Garden Sketchbook”

It will be held on three consecutive Fridays in September.

Jeff Charlesworth will teach you to use various graphic techniques that go beyond traditional record-keeping to record and enrich your observations about the natural world and your garden. Using graphic illustration (pencil, watercolor, and other media) and principles of landscape architecture, you can create a beautiful and valuable reference to inspire you, help you see more creatively, and make you a better gardener.

Reserve tickets online or call 215.278.7200.
