Instructor: Mitch Caster teaches drawing at the Art Students League of Denver, and before that, at Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design. He started his career as a news artist and courtroom illustrator. Mitch now works as a fine artist and shows his paintings in galleries in Colorado, New Mexico and Texas.

Grow Your Own Art Supplies and Eat Them Too


Join the Denver Botanic Gardens in a workshop with the artist! This workshop relates to artworks in the exhibit Raw, Cooked and Fermented. Viviane Le Courtois presents the processes of growing, fermenting and cooking plants that can be used both for drawing and cooking. The workshop focuses on using plants to make art year round. Growing up with limited art supplies, she used cut flowers in the garden to make paint, fermented and wove plants, cooked and gardened. All these actions are part of life and interconnected. The workshop mixes indoor and outdoor growing tips, observation drawing, other experimentation with plant materials, and ends with a cooking and degustation session using the plants.

Photographing Sculpture

Find the best vantage points and opportunities to photograph this seasons Stories in Sculpture art exhibition at Denver Botanic Gardens.

When photographing artwork we photographers are torn between faithfully rendering the work, or re-interpreting the work to our own creative ends. In this class we will try both approaches to see how our personal vision can visually redefine someone else’s original work of art. We will venture out into the gardens to capture images in the beautiful evening light.


Instructor: Scott Dressel-Martin, official photographer of the Denver Botanic Gardens

Special Instructions: This class will begin inside and then move out into the Gardens.
