Art Class in May

Anne-Marie Evans MBE will be in Virginia again teaching a master class in botanical art from May 21-25. The class is already full, but you may add your name to the waiting list using our Contact Us form. We frequently have people who must drop out before class time.

BAEE is working on a project of Heritage fruits, primarily apples. We began last November and are continuing this year in hopes of creating enough paintings for an exhibition. Because apples are not mature in May, we will concentrate on companion plants that are often grown in apple orchards. Some of these include Blueberry, Buttercup, Chives, Chicory, Clover, Cornflower, Daffodil, Daisy, Foxglove, Marigold, etc. What we paint will depend on what is available in May.
