Brookside Gardens Greenfest
BASNCR will partner with Brookside to provide a childrens' activity at Greenfest, helping teach about plants and botanical art. Our booth will be a watercolor painting station for kids ages 2-10, using watercolor pencils, water brushes, and brush markers. Our neighbor booth will be a flower dissection activity, so educating about plant parts will be part of our focus. We'll be providing simple line drawings of native plants for kids to paint, and would welcome new ones, especially any that feature plant dissection or plant structure.
Sponsor: Brookside Gardens
Date: April 22, 2023
Location: Brookside Gardens, 1800 Glenallen Avenue, Wheaton, Maryland
For interested artists: Contact Anne Clippinger to volunteer.

Botanical Artists' Table at Flower Mart
This year, as an education and outreach activity, BASCNR is invited to provide information and demonstrate botanical art during All Hallows Guild’s Flower Mart on the grounds of the National Cathedral. This spring festival, which also includes gift vendors, a plant sale, food, entertainment, kids’ rides and games, and an international floral display, benefits the Cathedral gardens and grounds and provides a great opportunity to reach out to young and old about botanical art.
Sponsor: All Hallows Guild
Date: May 5-6, 2023, 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Location: As Flower Mart falls in the middle of the run of "The Spirit in Bloom," the Guild's invitational art exhibition in which some of our members will be participating, our table will be upstairs in the Cathedral tower at the exhibition.
For interested artists: Contact Anne Clippinger to volunteer.
