Botanical Art Workshop: Symbolic Beauties & Meaningful Designs
Saturday, June 5; 10:30 AM–12:30 PM CDT
Designed for adults
This return of the MMFA’s botanical art series offers participants access to an engaging, pre-recorded lesson led by floral artist and enthusiast Laura Bocquin, as well as the opportunity to engage live and receive feedback during a virtual workshop.
The pre-recorded lesson will be available one week prior to the workshop and will include a brief introduction to the history of plant symbolism followed by step-by-step instructions on creating a botanical design that both looks beautiful and speaks a hidden message.
During the two-hour virtual workshop, participants can receive feedback on works they’ve made inspired by the lesson, as well as work in the moment as Laura creates another artwork live.
