Seminar: Botanical art and environmental communications
The tradition of botanical art, with its meticulous detail and scientific accuracy has long been a celebrated art form practiced by artists and novices the world over. While botanical art remains fundamentally aligned with the botany and the process of plant identification, it is not considered a tool in environmental communications when presenting botany related conservation issues.
Botanical artist and communications lecturer Karen Carter will discuss why botanical art is perfectly placed to bridge the gap between botany, art and environmental communications.
In the event of extreme weather, including a Total Fire Ban or Code Red Fire Danger Day, the seminars and field trips will not go ahead.
