Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is excited to continue a partnership with The Contemporary Austin Art School! Drawing and watercolor classes will be taught in our McDermott Learning Center, a beautifully restored 19th-century carriage house nestled in the gardens.

Enhance your drafting skills through drawing plant forms. Create detailed illustrations using a variety of papers with graphite, colored pencils, and ink. Enjoy and experience the native plants at the Wildflower Center by sketching flora in and out of the studio. Students will learn about the history of botanical drawing and benefit from demonstrations of various techniques. Prior drawing instruction is recommended. 

This class will take place in person at the Wildflower Center. Face masks are optional when attending this class. Please review our safety guidelines before your visit.
