We offer a broad range of botanical art classes with a flexible schedule. The classroom spaces have wonderful natural light. Botanical art is on exhibit and a library of botanical art books is available for students and the public to peruse.


The School is dedicated to furthering the tradition of the art of botanical illustration through teaching courses that combine the scientific and the aesthetic in drawing and painting. Courses are designed for those who want to explore art for pleasure as well as for those who are interested in pursuing the topic in more depth. The School offers three levels of certificates in Botanical Art.

Our plant specimens are just outside our doors! Behind Longfellow House is Longfellow Garden, featuring a variety of annual and perennial plants. Beyond the formal garden is a gentle slope of native prairie plants and grasses.
