Join Katy Lyness, passionate home gardener and teacher of Botanical Illustration at the New York Botanical Garden, as she returns with a new two-part Botanical Drawing class.

The first day will cover instruction and demonstration; the second day will consist of constructive critiques of the students’ work.
