From goldfinches to bald eagles, Bartram’s Garden is a favorite stop for many migratory and year-round species of birds. In this one of a kind workshop, we’ll take a look at the art and the science of avian anatomy. Explore new techniques for drawing on the fly and experience our feathered friends from a new perspective.
Our Artists’ Workshop series is rooted in the rich history of Bartram’s Garden, the oldest botanical garden in America. Following in the tradition of pioneering American explorer and botanical illustrator William Bartram, teaching artists Heather Rinehart and Alina Josan approach fine art through their love of nature and history. Heather Rinehart has a professional background in illustration and design and a deep interest in nature and storytelling. Alina Josan studied painting at the Tyler School of Art. Her work has been commissioned by several notable historic institutions in Philadelphia. As highly knowledgeable Bartram’s Garden enthusiasts, these artists are in a unique position to offer their students instruction in multi-disciplinary place-based art.
