Many wondrous moments can be found within our garden houses. From butterflies to tropical blooms, our garden houses, including the Wings of the Tropics Exhibit, the Tropical Plant Conservatory, and the Rare Plant House, will reveal these gems and more to you during our workshop. Join fellow artists as we explore many of these beautiful species from our garden and capture their essence under the guidance of Carlos Gallostra. Using references taken from a wide array of tropical species on location, we’ll take these back to the studio where you will be able to develop a dynamic illustrative work in watercolor, color pencils, or mixtures of both. All levels are welcome!
