ACHF Arts Education
We will increase the types of art opportunities by instructing drawing students on botanical illustration and landscape design. We will provide access to outdoor arts education for students who might not be interested in standard visual arts. We will measure outcomes by collecting data on 1) the number of art students given classroom instruction on botanical illustration and landscape design and 2) the number of arts and non-arts students who are involved with the garden installation.
We accomplished the goals of introducing high school art students to the artistic disciplines of botanical illustration and garden design through the instruction of professional artist Dustin Demmer, who directly instructed over 120 art students.
