Prerequisite: Botanical Drawing I

Required Text:

Glimn-Lacey & Kaufman, Botany Illustrated 2006

This text is designed as if it were a coloring book although the focus will not be on the use of color. Those pages devoted to the families we cover will only need to be labeled. The drawings are clear and accurate and the text is geared to the level of our course. There is a good deal more botany included than what we cover. It is available on the Internet and at the NYBG shop.
