Students at the Botanical Gardens

Students from Ms. Sylvia’s Digital Photography and Painting classes visited the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens this week to experience plein air painting and landscape photography. It was a beautiful morning on the coast of Maine and the students were impressed with the compositional attributes of the gardens, and the variety of plant materials. “It’s wonderful to have a chance for students to experience how practicing artists work on location in the “real” world, and to take advantage of such an incredible resource this close to home” said Sylvia.
