NYBG's Botanical Art Program

Veronica Lawlor, Watercolor, gouache, and fountain pen,
painted almost entirely with a Connoisseur Protege 9467 travel brush
Besides being a leading public garden, the NYBG is an art school for plant lovers, with dozens of courses and weekend workshops on everything from “Plant Morphology for Botanical Artists” to “Daylilies in Colored Pencil and Watercolor.”

They were the first to offer a certificate program in Botanical Art & Illustration. For more info, here's their website: NYBG Botanical Art and Illustration.

Veronica Lawlor is a pastel artist and urban sketcher and she teaches at Parsons andPratt.

Another amazing garden in your area is Stonecrop Garden in Cold Spring. We used to live in Queens, and we'd rent a car to drive up there. They specialize in obscure alpine plants.
