Discover the fascinating world of natural history illustration through its greatest contributors from ancient Greece to the nineteenth century. Investigate the unusual lives of those who traveled the globe in search of new specimens and how they contributed to our understanding of nature. Each week’s instruction will focus on a different field of study:  botany, entomology, mammalogy, ornithology, marine biology, and cartography. Students then will be guided through the process of illustrating specimens from each field using Micron pens, colored pencils, acrylic inks, or other wet or dry media of choice.
