Since 2011, we have included a distance learning option in our School of Botanical Art and Illustration curriculum at Denver Botanic Gardens. This option has been a hybrid (in-class/off-site) model in which we combine classroom participation with remote online learning. We believe that even though teaching through video can be effective, the personal contact between instructor and students and concentrated one-on-one tutoring followed by number of Internet sessions provides a stronger learning experience.
We are excited to announce that this winter/spring we are expanding our distance learning option to Arlington, VA, offering a selection of 3-day weekend classes at Gallery Underground, 2100 Crystal City, Arlington, VA. Classes are offered February through May.
