Teacher Directory: Barbara Holden


Background

I am teaching botanical art in my home and gave a course in botanical art at the Betty Ford Botanical Garden last year.


I teach accurate drawing skills and work with graphite pencils, coloured pencils, water colours, and pen & ink.


My background is an AB degree from Vassar College, MA degree from the Cleveland Institute of Art, and many years of taking courses in the Field Study Institutes in Great Britain: Flatford Mill, Preston Martin and Juniper Hall. I have taken many botanical workshops through ASBA, at conferences and courses in Denver and in Cape Cod.


Recently, I have been studying local Colorado plants through courses given by the CSU extension service in the Vail Valley region.


I teach small classes for adults only.
