Botanical Artistry Celebrated

Denver Botanic Gardens has transformed utterly over the many decades that I have worked and visited here--but perhaps no facet of the Gardens has surprised me more than the extraordinary success of our Botanical Illustrations program. The first class on Botanical Illustration was taught in October of 1979 by Ann Cunningham. Angela Overy is credited for really formalizing the program at the Gardens: she and Rob Proctor taught botanical illustration regularly through the 1980's, and in 1990 Angela established the Botanical Illustration Certificate Program--the first of its kind worldwide.
