Mara Menahan, USBG Botanical Illustrator
Join the USBG's botanical illustrator for an insider's perspective on the practice of field journaling. We will take a peek inside the field journals of famous scientists and naturalists to understand how the daily ritual of drawing and notetaking led to historic scientific discoveries. Mara will share her own sketchbooks and will demonstrate basic drawing techniques to help you capture landscape, shape, texture, and form. Participants will be provided a journal to record their own observations of native plants in the National Garden.
