Norton Simon Museum


As part of their Middle School Series, the Norton Simon Museum has a Botanical Drawings class on Wednesday, March 21. Dutch artists from the 17th century displayed their skill by creating paintings of flowers and plants with great detail. Examine Jan Davidzoon de Heem’s use of precise line and color in Vase of Flowers, and then work directly from nature in the Sculpture Garden. Make a detailed botanical drawing using a magnifying glass, graphite and color pencils.
