Botanical Illustration Applications - Tiles in the style of Art Nouveau

(Four tiles by Doug McCallum illustrating Colorado native butterflies, colored pencil)

Twelve students  have recently completed a colored pencil elective on designing Art Nouveau tiles. The next step will be to transfer the design to tiles, which then will be used in bathrooms, kitchens etc. Last year's Arts and Archives Europe tour initiated the idea to this truly successful class offering. Please see more images from this class by clicking here.
