The present location of our Botanical illustration classroom offers the dream-come-true environment for a Botanical Illustrator. Right  outside the classroom door we have Marnie's pavillion, a two story orchid and bromeliad display with waterfalls and other water features with rock formations.
In the lover level we have the Orangery with the view inside the state-of-the-art greenhouses.
Only some 20 feet away from the classroom students can access the Boettcher Memorial Tropical Conservatory with thousands of exotic specimens. 
Botanical illustration class: Tropical plants in Watercolor with Constance Sayas as the instructor was completed today. Please see some random images from the last session in the BI-Facebook, or by clicking here.
